In brief: Hand washing.

The swine flu is passed just in the same way as any regular flu or cold - when infected people sneeze or cough and other people breathe in the virus or get it on their hands and touch their mouth or eyes.
Basic handwashing is key. Soap and water is good, but the alcohol based gels work best, and it's more convenient to use.
