Sneeze into your sleeve, not your hand, and stock up on supplies.

Those are some of the suggestions the government is making in the event of a flu pandemic.

They're listed in a new guide. There are familiar tips like having enough water, food and prescription drugs on hand. It also calls on families to keep a chart with basic medical histories and current information.

Because flu outbreaks could shut down schools, parents are asked to be ready to teach kids at home. Readers are also told to think about alternatives to public transportation.

The guide says preparation will give Americans "confidence that we are ready to fight a flu pandemic."
