Health officials offer several important tips on how to prevent spread of salmonella infection.
Wash: Wash hands well by using soap and warm water to lather your hands and wash for 20 seconds, or about the time it takes to say the ABC's.
Disinfect: Remember common surfaces such as light switches, TV remote controls and door knobs, as well as kitchen and bathroom surfaces, including toilet flush handles.
Bathe: Take frequent showers.
Eating: Do not cook for others or share food or drink.
Contact: Avoid close contact with others and use a separate bathroom, if possible.
