To help reduce the chances of flu spreading, Public Health Wales say people should:

  • Catch it: always cough or sneeze into a tissue

  • Bin it: dispose of the tissue after use

  • Kill it: then wash your hands or use hand sanitizer to kill any flu viruses

Public Health Wales are advising people with flu symptoms to stay home from work, school and other public places for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone to avoid infecting other people.
