What should people who keep poultry do?

1. Do not touch poultry, birds, or their excrement, especially for the weak, such as children or the elderly.
2. Wash hands with soap and clean water after touching poultry or its excrement.
3. Workers in the poultry industry should wear personal protection equipment during the working process; take a shower and perform disinfection after work.
4. Strengthen our resistance against diseases and live a healthy lifestyle; for example, balanced diets, proper exercise, sufficient rest, and being a non-smoker.
5. Maintain good personal and environmental hygiene, such as keeping hands clean, washing hands correctly, covering your mouth and nose when sneezing, wrapping up your sputum or mucus with a paper napkin before throwing it into a trash can and washing hands.
6. Perform temperature monitoring. Wear a mask once you have any symptoms of flu and take medical treatment and sample collection. Tell the medical staff about the contact history.
