Holiday traditions are important. But the risk of spreading germs this year makes things more complicated. The good news is that there are easy things we can all do to enjoy the holidays AND protect our health and the health of our loved ones.
During the holiday season, people tend to gather together, visit with each other, and share food and drinks. Unfortunately, that also means that germs spread easily. In fact, according to a recent study, sharing food or drinks with just one person who’s sick makes others 19 times more likely to be infected also.
As we have become familiar with:
- Try to meet outdoors if possible!
- Limit extremely close contact with others
- Do not food or drink
- Wash your hands frequently
- Happy New Year!!
