New Flu Safety Kit Hits the Market!

April 28, 2009 (Newbury Park, CA) - Minimus ( has just launched their newest travel-size kit, the Flu Safety Kit ( Just when we all thought that the flu season was winding down, the Swine Flu virus has begun circulating. Though so far Americans have been told there is no need to panic, there are some basic precautions that we should all be taking to help prevent the virus from afflicting ourselves and our families.

According to the Center for Disease Controlís website (, the following are some very simple steps that we can all take that will help to prevent ourselves against the flu virus.

Flu Safety Kit "What You Can Do to Stay Healthy
There are everyday actions people can take to stay healthy.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze.
  • Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way."
