As illnesses start to spread more rapidly, it’s important to take measures to remain healthy this season.
Holiday season means dinners, travel, parties, and family gatherings. This also means the more people you spend time with, the higher your chances are of becoming sick.
At the moment, COVID-19, the flu, and RSV have all been spreading. Many people are falling ill at the same time, according to My Twin Tiers. Those most impacted by these illnesses include young children, older people, and those with weak immune systems.
Experts are expecting a severe flu season due to the current flu activity being much higher than normal. To help stop the spread, make sure your family is washing their hands, not being around sick people, and staying home while sick. Vaccines and boosters can also stop the severity of an illness. Sleeping well, drinking plenty of water, and washing your clothes in hot water to kill germs will all help you avoid getting sick.
