As we head into cold and flu season, New Jerseyans are encouraged to take precautions to keep themselves and their loved ones healthy.

Basic strategies to prevent the spread of viruses include staying up to date on your vaccinations, washing your hands often, coughing or sneezing into your elbow, and staying home if you’re feeling or are sick.

Check with your health care provider to learn how best to protect yourself and your family from the flu, COVID-19 and RSV, especially if you have a weakened immune system.
