H1N1 Swine Flu – CDC Recommended Germ Killers

It’s hard to predict how the looming H1N1 Swine Flu Virus will impact your family, community or workplace, but what with all the hooplah it is best to be prepared.   

Allegro’s broad range of antimicrobial germ killers lets you order the same products used in hospitals and other health care facilities – for use in your own home, vehicle, office, school or social gathering places.  We suggest you order these hospital grade disinfectants and sanitizers today, as demand is expected to be high.

Why stock up on antimicrobials?  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the H1N1 virus is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through the coughing or sneezing of infected people.  Droplets from a cough or sneeze move through the air and can transmit the flu to people close by.  Sometimes people may also become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose. 

How to Protect Your Health

  • When you cough or sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue.  Throw it in the trash afterwards… please.

 

 

 

  • To prevent the spread of influenza virus it is important to keep surfaces clean (especially bedside tables, surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen counters and toys for children) by wiping them down with a household disinfectant.  Allegro has many Surface Disinfectants to choose from,  including disinfectant towelettes, spray cleaners, sanitizing sprays, wipes, home care kits and foggers.

 

 

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.  Germs spread this way. 

 

  • Avoid contact with sick people.

 

  • If you’re sick with flu-like illness, the CDC recommends you stay home for at least 24 hours AFTER your fever is gone, except to get medical care or other necessities.
