(WTOL) - It's getting close to Ohio fair season.

Ahead of that happy time, authorities are urging people to use good hygiene to protect themselves from viruses and other illnesses while visiting livestock exhibits.

Remember, always wash hands after touching any animal.

Don't eat, drink or put anything in your mouth while in animal areas.

You should leave strollers outside and carry small children in animal areas.
