Love isn’t the only thing in the air this month. Flu season has spiked across North Texas.
The Centers for Disease Control recently listed Texas as a high activity state, meaning the risk of exposure for influenza is higher for Texans. The virus can be spread in the air when a sick person sneezes, coughs or even talks.
If someone in your home or at work has been diagnosed with the virus, there are some things you can do to help prevent further outbreak.
Here are some helpful tips for preventing the spread of the virus:
Wash your hands before eating or touching your face.
Do not share food or drinks with others.
Avoid close contact with sick people.
Get a flu shot! There’s still time to protect yourself with the flu vaccine.
Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated.
