This time of year is always scary. Flu season. This year already it has caused the most hospitalizations in nearly a decade.
The strain of influenza, H3N2, is one of the very worst, one that medical professionals truly hate. I hate it too.
I don’t want to find out how our little guy’s body would react to having to fight off this nasty virus. I can’t even begin to visualize the treatment and outcome.
Here are some things you can do to help from spreading the flu:
If one of your germ infested droplets touches a surface and someone else touches said surface and then wipes their nose or mouth they could also now have the flu.
I am begging you...just stay home.
2. Wash your hands. And wash them again.
Upon entering your house from running errands or getting home from school or work head straight to the sink and wash your hands.
3. If anyone in your house is cuddled up on the couch with the flu, wash every surface in your household.
Flu germs can live on surfaces for 1-2 days. Get out your Lysol spray and Clorox wipes and disinfect all of the surfaces you can.
4. Don’t cough into your hands. I know that this should be common sense, but use your elbow.
Use a kleenex to wipe your nose, not your hand, and wash your hands again. (Do you see the theme here?)
No one wants to get the flu, and I realize that spreading the flu isn’t intentional.
But I think if we all take these 4 precautions we can help from spreading the flu even further.
I know MANY other parents with typical children and children with special needs also thank you, actually, we all thank you.
And remember to wash your hands.
