With flu season fast approaching combined with the current pandemic, it is more vital than ever to take various precautions to ensure your health and safety. Without taking essential precautions, you could find yourself doubly at risk of severe illnesses. However, by taking extra precautions to keep your home, office, and yourself clean, you could avoid the disastrous impact of a "Twindemic."
The first step you should consider taking is getting a flu shot. Getting the flu shot will lower the possibility of you contracting the flu and diminish the symptoms if you were to contract it. Overall, getting a flu shot will help prevent influenza, avoid a mistaken diagnosis of COVID-19, and preserve healthcare resources.
Wearing a mask is another crucial step you can take to avoid the flu and Covid-19. Continue to wear a mask throughout flu season when you are in public places to protect others around you and provide yourself with an additional layer of protection from bacteria and germs.
Another critical step to take is to use EPA-registered disinfectants to clean your home, office, and other spaces. EPA registered disinfectants such as the Anti3 Protect Series product line are proven to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria and viruses from surfaces. Anti3 products can be used to disinfect and clean counters, door handles, couches, floors, shoes, and other high-contact surfaces.
Lastly, wash your hands often with warm water and soap. When you cannot access a sink, use hand sanitizer until you are able to properly wash your hands.
While the idea of going through flu season amid a global pandemic may be scary, there are essential steps you can take to ensure you avoid the flu, which will help you keep you and your loved ones safe.
