Health Officials Warn of Continuing Infectious Threats
April 16, 2008 - State health officials are warning Hoosiers that the arrival of spring and warmer weather does not mean they should not continue to protect themselves from infectious diseases like the flu, colds and other maladies.
"Proper hand washing is the single most important means to preventing infection,"Jean Svendsen, chief nurse consultant at the Indiana State Department of Health, said in a recent press release. At a minimum, Svendsen said people should wash their hands:
• After using the restroom;
• After diapering a child or assisting a child to use the restroom;
• After caring for someone who is ill;
• After cleaning soiled areas;
• After coughing or sneezing into hands or using facial tissues; and
• Before and after preparing food.
Health officials also recommend coughing or sneezing into a sleeve, rather than one's hands, if a disposable tissue is unavailable.
