Keeping your family healthy this season
(NC) — No one dreads cold and flu season more than parents as it can be difficult to keep kids feeling healthy. Sneezing, coughs, fevers and sad faces seem to be something families are constantly battling against.
There is no way to completely prevent the occurrence of colds but you can protect yourself and your family against the spread of germs and infectious illnesses, such as cold and flu, by using the following steps:
• Wash hands properly and regularly.
• Drink lots of liquids and get plenty of rest.
• Throw away used tissues immediately after use and clean commonly used surfaces such as remotes and phones.
• It is also important to keep in mind that even though hands or surfaces may appear to be clean, they may still be carrying germs that can make you or those around you sick.
