Last updated 10/7/2020 at 5:08pm

The coronavirus and influenza are both spread from person to person, especially indoors and in crowded places.

Here are some tips to help prevent COVID-19 and the flu:

· Wash your hands properly and regularly or use a hand sanitizer.

· Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, throw it away and wash your hands.

· If you’re sick, stay home and isolate yourself from others.

· Use a face covering when in public and close to others. They prevent spreading germs and viruses.

· Maintain physical distance from others.

· Avoid crowded places to decrease your risk of exposure.

Last season, 20,711 lab-confirmed flu cases were reported in the region and 108 San Diegans died from complications from influenza.

Through Sept. 30, a total of 47,180 COVID-19 cases have been reported in San Diego County, including 783 deaths.
