What Can I Do to Prevent a Flu Outbreak at My School or Office?

Infection control and proper air quality are key during cold and flu season to help limit the virus from spreading. Encourage those who are sick to stay home and recover and remind everyone to practice good hygiene on a consistent basis. Help your classroom and medical facilities stay stocked on the essentials with Kleenex, antibacterial solutions, and green sterilizing cleaning solutions. It also helps to post flu prevention flyers in high-traffic areas like the restrooms or the front desk. Download them for free from the CDC!


Bolster your facility’s defenses against this year’s flu season. Just remember two things: monitor your air filters and add more routine cleaning. Changing out your air filters helps with maintaining air quality. They capture viral bacteria and prevent it from being recirculated into your offices and classrooms.

Consider contracting services from a local commercial janitorial company for your school, medical facility or business office, as the right kind of commercial cleaning company will provide a variety of services specific to infection control for your education or medical facility.
