DHHS Flu Prevention Tip of the Week

For the Week of Feb. 15



Note:  A sound bite is available at:   http://www.dhhs.ne.gov/Pages/audio.aspx

Flu prevention tip of the week from Dr. Joann Schaefer, Chief Medical Officer for the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

“Sanitizing children’s toys is a good way to keep those flu germs at bay.  A two minute dip in a simple bleach and water solution usually does the trick.”
