Tips to Minimize the Risk of Flu in Your Household

by | Mar 20, 2019 | Features

The flu season is still lurking around us, and finding ways to ensure that your family reduces their risk of contraction can certainly give you some peace of mind. Take the time to educate your kids on proper hygiene in terms of washing their hands thoroughly with soap and water, especially before eating a meal. Wash main contact points around your home such as doorknobs much more often than other spaces as these areas have the highest risk of cross contamination.

Key Takeaways:

  • Kids can bring positive things home from school like art projects and funny stories, but they can also bring negatives home like a germ during flu season.
  • Flu in kids is ever often so common because their immune system is still developing and that means they are more likely to attract germs and viruses.
  • The fact that kids are in large groups like at the nurseries where there are lots of germs flowing around also ensures they bring them home.

“A better understanding of flu in kids can be a huge asset when you’re trying to keep germs at bay in your home.”
