The holiday travel season is in full swing, and as always, holiday travels coincide with the peak of flu season. The holidays should be a time of gratefulness, laughter and spending time with those you love. Don’t let catching a bug steal your fun.
This time of year, one of the most major medical concerns is contracting the flu. This illness, which can last up to two weeks, brings nasty respiratory symptoms and generally makes you feel awful. The influenza virus, commonly known as the flu, is also highly contagious. It’s possible for flu patients to spread the disease to others up to seven days after first experiencing symptoms.
