How do you prevent airborne diseases?

In a clinical setting, health care workers can prevent the transmission of airborne diseases by having patients with airborne illnesses enter the facility through a different entrance than other patients when possible, notes the Minnesota Department of Health. Leaving the patient’s room vacant for approximately an hour, depending on how well-ventilated the room is, before allowing anyone else to enter, can also lessen the chances of someone else contracting the illness.
