5 Ways to Stay Well This Winter

Winter will be here before you know it and with it brings higher risk of colds and flus. It is more important than ever to keep your family healthy and safe, especially in light of the pandemic. Preventing illness is possible, but you have to be diligent and take all the necessary precautions. Here are just a few things to consider.

  1. Teach your kids good hygiene habits at school...
    Make sure your kiddos wear their masks and change or wash them daily. Remind them to wash their hands and use their own supplies like pencils, pens, crayons, rulers and calculators. Tuck some hand sanitizer into their backpack and lunchbox so it is handy no matter what or where they are in their school day. ViroShield Hand & Surface Cleansing Sprays work great for this as well as ViroShield Hand Sanitizer which meets all FDA requirements. 
  1. Clean or replace your air filters...
    Air filters remove pollen and other allergens as the air passes through them. Clogged filters can lead to carbon monoxide buildup. It’s especially important to check your air filters if you live in an area where fires have been breaking out.
  1. Consider getting a flu shot...
    According to the Mayo Clinic there are three to four influenza viruses expected to be in circulation this flu season. Flu shots are readily available at most pharmacies which makes it easy to get one.
  1. Frequently clean and disinfect high-touch and horizontal surfaces in your home...
    A daily routine of wiping down countertops, tables, chair arms, door handles, toilet handles, phones, remote controls, keyboards, etc. can make a big difference. We know you are likely doing that already, but we suggest doing it much more often than you may be currently to ensure limiting exposure to germs. 
  1. Make sure your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide monitors are installed and working properly...
    It’s not just viruses that are big threats this winter. The season brings a higher risk of fires from candles, fireplaces and heaters that may not be working properly. Using heaters can increase the risk of carbon monoxide buildup as well, so it is worth investing the time to ensure your system is working correctly.
