Classes are to resume Monday, Feb. 10.

General health tips include the following:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth to cut down on the spread of germs
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs such as the flu
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. After using a tissue, throw it in the trash and wash your hands
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people
