Bird flu prevention

In the event of a bird flu pandemic careful thought should be given to adopting suitable Infection Control Procedures. It will be important to avoid flu infection at all costs. Protecting your eyes, nose, mouth and hands from virus particles will be a major priority as these are the most common passageways for a flu virus to transfer into the body.

Bird flu virus particles may also be transferred via clothing and especially via shoes and so potentially contaminated footwear should not be brought into your 'safe zone'. If you have worn protective clothing this should disinfected or be disposed of with care as controlled waste. Any unprotected clothing or footwear should be disinfected. A final step should always be to sanitize your hands to further reduce the chances of cross-contamination.
