Cold & Flu Health Tips

With the Coronavirus making national news & locally schools are closing due to illness, we felt it important to share some tips to help you through the worst cold & flu season yet. This article from the Centers for Disease Control offer up some great tips on battling colds & flu:

– Avoid Close Contact. Stay away from people who are ill and conversely stay away from people when you are ill.

– Stay Home. If at all possible, stay home when you are ill to prevent spreading the illness.

– Cover Your Face. Cover your mouth & nose with a tissue or hankerchief when coughing or sneezing. Not covering your mouth & nose can spread illness through airborne saliva droplets or mucus. Consider wearing a dust/surgical mask if coughing or sneezing is constant.

– Wash Your Hands. Ignaz Semmelweis discovered that infection from germs/sickness could be greatly reduced by washing your hands with plain soap & water. Use antibacterial soap or hand sanitizer if unable to wash your hands.
