PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
PSA for Kids – Hygiene
January 4, 2010 4:30 PM ET
Hey kids! There are things you can do to stay safe from the flu!
Wash your hands with soap and water long enough to sing the Happy Birthday song twice OR use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
Cough or sneeze into a tissue or use your elbow or shoulder; NOT your hands.
Stay away from sick people so they don′t give you their germs and make you sick.
If you don′t feel well, tell an adult right away. You might have to stay home for a while so you don′t make others sick.
A message from CDC and HHS.
To learn more, see CDC's information on h1n1 flu or call 1-800-CDC-INFO.
