The Readiness Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) Technical Assistance (TA) Center http://rems.ed.gov/ also has useful resources and information for addressing infectious diseases as part of a comprehensive emergency operations plan (EOP), including coping with a widespread outbreak at rems.ed.gov/KeepSchoolsSafeFromDiseases.aspx

* Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth;

* Avoid close contact with those who are already sick;

* Get plenty of sleep;

* Eat healthy food and drink plenty of fluids;

* Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or the crook of your arm;

 * Stay home if ill for at least 24 hours after fever is gone.
