The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has some tips of its own to help you through this year's tough cold and flu season:
* Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Immediately throw the used tissue in the garbage.
* Make sure your workplace has an adequate supply of tissues, soap, paper towels, alcohol-based sanitizing hand rubs and disposable wipes.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth to minimize the spread of germs.* Stay home when you're sick.
