Positive cases are dropping and the spread of the Delta Variant is slowing down.
But that doesn’t mean people shouldn’t prepare to be safe this winter.
Though cases are dropping, they still remain high. Children are still unvaccinated right now as well.
This winter doctors are worried about a “twindemic.”
Last year there was hardly a flu season because people remained vigilant with masks, social distancing, and hand washing to avoid the spread of COVID.
This year though, safety precautions have relaxed, which gives the flu a chance to spread this year on top of COVID-19.
Doctors and experts are urging adults to get the flu vaccine as well.
