It’s hard to predict how the looming H1N1 Swine Flu Virus will impact your family, community or workplace, but what with all the hooplah it is best to be prepared.
Allegro’s broad range of antimicrobial germ killers lets you order the same products used in hospitals and other health care facilities – for use in your own home, vehicle, office, school or social gathering places. We suggest you order these hospital grade disinfectants and sanitizers today, as demand is expected to be high.
Why stock up on antimicrobials? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the H1N1 virus is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through the coughing or sneezing of infected people. Droplets from a cough or sneeze move through the air and can transmit the flu to people close by. Sometimes people may also become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.
How to Protect Your Health
- When you cough or sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue. Throw it in the trash afterwards… please.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you sneeze or cough. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also effective. Have kids? Order Sani-Hands for Kids. It’s an antimicrobial alcohol gel hand wipes that kill 99.99% of germs while removing bacteria and soil. See All Hand Sanitizers.
- How do you know if your employees or kids are washing their hands properly? Teach them with the Glo-Germ Handwashing Learning Kit.
- To prevent the spread of influenza virus it is important to keep surfaces clean (especially bedside tables, surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen counters and toys for children) by wiping them down with a household disinfectant. Allegro has many Surface Disinfectants to choose from, including disinfectant towelettes, spray cleaners, sanitizing sprays, wipes, home care kits and foggers.
- BE PREPARED in case you get sick and need to stay home for a week or so; a supply of over the counter medicines, alcohol-based hand sanitizers, tissues and other related Cold/Flu Items might be useful and help avoid the need to make trips out in public while sick and contagious.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
- Avoid contact with sick people.
- If you’re sick with flu-like illness, the CDC recommends you stay home for at least 24 hours AFTER your fever is gone, except to get medical care or other necessities.
