Cold and Flu Season

When riding NJ TRANSIT, please be considerate of others during cold and flu season. Here are some tips to help prevent the spread of germs:

  • Use tissues - not your hands - to cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Throw tissues away and wash your hands as soon as possible.
  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
  • Stay home if you are sick and stay away from others who are sick.
  • Wash your hands frequently and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Eat well, exercise and get plenty of rest.

Finally, consider getting the flu vaccine (check with your doctor first). For more information, visit
