Tips for staying healthy this winter season

This winter, the whole Salem-Keizer community can work together to keep our schools, students and community safe and healthy.

Remember to follow some simple precautions to prevent illness:

  • Stay home when sick.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid the sharing of cups and utensils.
  • Wash hands regularly for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth and keep your hands away from your or your child’s face.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are often touched, such as doorknobs and electronic devices.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Consider wearing a mask in crowded indoor settings, especially if you or someone in your home is at high risk for severe disease.
  • CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu vaccine annually.
