Printer Friendly, PDF & Email

This fact sheet is for public health professionals. It provides a brief overview on specific non-pharmaceutical measures to be used in community settings. Such measures can prevent the spread of influenza by interrupting the transfer of viruses from objects or people through the use of personal protective equipment or changes to behaviour. The content is primarily based on the NCCID article “Non-pharmaceutical measures to prevent influenza transmission: the evidence for individual protective measures” by Crabtree and Henry.
