CDC has joined together with key infection control organizations to help Americans fight the spread of infection in health care settings and in the community, and avoid contagious diseases like the common cold, strep throat and influenza.
CDC and its partners urge Americans to fight the spread of infection by taking these three easy steps:
- Clean your hands
- Cover your mouth and nose
- Avoid close contact & stay home if you're sick

This infection control campaign is part of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations' award-winning “Speak Up” program that urges patients to take an increasingly active role in their own health care.
