15 Jun Tips to Get You Through Spring Flu Season
Summer is upon us and yet it’s still Spring flu season. According to the CDC, winter is the time for flu, but the exact timing and duration of flu seasons vary. While seasonal flu outbreaks can happen as early as October, most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February, although activity can last as late as May and into early June. In addition to getting vaccinated, there are several things you can do to prevent getting sick and spreading germs.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth, where it’s especially easy to transfer germs.
- If you can, avoid being near people who are sick.
- Get lots of sleep and exercise, relax, drink plenty of fluids and eat healthy.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and throw that tissue out – then wash your hands.
If someone in your home has been sick, it’s very important to get your entire home disinfected. Germs and viruses can live on surfaces and in your carpet fibers for weeks, putting everyone in your home at risk.
