Bring along a hand sanitizer and make sure you use it before you eat and try, (if you can) to avoid public washrooms.

Take these everyday steps to protect your health:
* Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
* Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
* Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
o Stay home if you are sick for 7 days after your symptoms begin or until you have been symptom-free for 24 hours, whichever is longer. This is to keep from infecting others and spreading the virus further.
Other important actions that you can take are:
* Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.
* Be prepared in case you get sick and need to stay home for a week or so; a supply of over-the-counter medicines, alcohol-based hand rubs, tissues and other related items might could be useful and help avoid the need to make trips out in public while you are sick and contagious.

Well, you would want to wash your hands before you eat, keep hand sanitary wipes around, possibly wear a mask, drink lots of fluids before, and if you are already sick, don't go. Don't touch your nose or your eyes too much, that is how germs get into your body.
Vitamin C would most likely help because it is a vitamin that builds up your immune system. Just basically be healthy and try to avoid germs. Try to especially avoid people that seem to be sneezing and coughing alot.
I hope this helped... :)

vitamin c does not help the imune system is caught off gaurd by the new virus and nothing will help stop it from spreading to you exept if the person with it covers their mouth with their SLEEVE not their hand and washes their hands freely if you go to the immusment park stay away from sneezing and coughing people and wash your hands after every ride or two because a infected person may have touched the ride and put the virus on that ride so after rides do not touch your face and wash your hands more than when you go to the bathroom wash your hands about every ride for maximum protection

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Stay away from hospitals unless you're having an emergency, as hospitals could be one of the likeliest places you could be exposed to swine virus. Avoid visiting crowded public area unless it’s really necessary. Wear a facemask or N95 respirator when entering crowded settings and when you go to the doctors. A facemask is not very secure because it can be inhaled around the edges. N95 respirator fits snugly on your face but compared with a facemask it is harder to breathe through an N95 mask for long periods of time. Skip public transportation. The Swine Flu Virus is spread through the air. Any place, such as a bus or plane, that causes you to be confined with others in a small place,
Practice other good health habits.
Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth. Wash your hands often, especially before, during, and after preparing food. Before you eat and after going to the bathroom. Use alcohol wipes to clean shopping carts handles, restaurant tables and high chairs. Studies have shown that influenza virus can survive on environmental surfaces and can infect a person for up to 2-8 hours after being deposited on the surface.
Get Enough Rest.
Just like it becomes harder for you to get your daily tasks done if you're tired, if your body is overly fatigued it will be harder for it to fight the flu. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress and drink plenty of fluids.
Eat Garlic Regularly
Garlic does more than make our food taste good, it can aid in the healing and even prevention of certain medical conditions. Studies have shown that garlic extract improves immune function, giving our natural defense system a boost, and helping it conserve our levels of antioxidants in our system. It is this strengthening of the immune system that aids in its support for other health related conditions.
Exercise increase circulation of blood flow throughout your body. The components of your immune system are also better circulated, which means your immune system has a better chance of combating an intruders before it has a chance to cause havoc in your body. Exercising helps your immune system to be more efficient in weeding out and acting upon viruses and diseases.
Establish a healthy diet plan
Establish a consistent diet plan that consists of all your vitamins and minerals. Add diversity to your diet by way of implementing a variety of fruits, vegetables and other foods to promote general health and well being. Eat about 2 servings of yogurt, preferably the type with special digestive enzymes which promote the growth of healthy bacteria that is needed to aid in a healthy immune system. Green tea is also a world renown supplement which improves metabolic function and increases immunity.
