Self Care

Germs are everywhere and you come into contact with them throughout the day.  

Some simple ways to prevent illness include:

  • Hand washing
  • Good hygiene practice (i.e. cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue and immediately dispose of tissue in a trash receptacle)
  • Avoid close contact with others who are obviously ill.
  • Take care of yourself!! Get Good nutrition & Adequate Rest.
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day. Limit alcohol consumption.

What to do:   

If you should become sick, you can prevent an unnecessary visit to the health center with a few self care measures to treat common illness at home.


  • You can purchase items and medications at any local pharmacy without a prescription.  Follow all package directions carefully.
  • Your local pharmacist is a good resource if you have questions concerning medication usage.
  • If symptoms persist despite use of over the counter medications (OTC), call the Central Appointment Unit for further instructions or to schedule an appointment
