It's been a tough season for those suffering from the  flu  and even though it is February, the flu virus is still going around, as well as seasonal colds.

We love being social here at CSS, but just a few tips on keeping yourself and others healthy this season:

  • Suspend hand shakes and kisses and hugs.
  • Greet with warm smiles or "elbow bumps"!
  • Wash hands frequently
  • Cover coughs with tissues or inside of elbow, not your hands
  • Get plenty of rest, Eat Healthy and stay hydrated
  • Stay home if not feeling well
  • Use hand sanitizers - we just purchased 3 new "Hands-free" dispensers for the building
