It’s Cold & Flu Season

With the cold weather comes the cold and flu season. Especially this year, the flu has been something we’ve all be warned about. We’ve seen how fast this disease can spread. Even in Claremore, Oklahoma, it’s very easy to spread an illness to others.

Oklahoma Business Owners should stress to their employees, if they are sick please do not come into the office. One sick employee can easily make an entire office sick. The same goes for students in our Oklahoma schools; parents are not supposed to let their kids go to school when they’re sick and contagious. This can cause an outbreak at the school, and sometimes, these illnesses can be very harmful to one’s health.

Some simple steps that we can take in Oklahoma each day are easy to follow. The one we hear the most is wash your hands with warm water and soap. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use an anti-bacterial hand rub. This one step alone can help prevent the spread of the flu, the common cold, or any other viral or bacterial infections.  Another helpful tip is to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. This is how germs spread.  When you touch something that has been touched by someone with a cold, and then you touch your nose, eyes, or mouth you’ve just transferred those germs straight to your system.  And finally, the last tip is just a common courtesy to those around you. When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue. Just be sure to throw the tissue away after you use it.

These few suggestions could help you survive the Oklahoma winter season in good health. With the holidays around the corner, no one has time to be sick. So take a few extra minutes to take care of yourself and help prevent the spread of sickness to not only yourself but also those around you.
