ATLANTA, GA-Gathering with loved ones to celebrate the holidays is an important tradition for many, but it is also a time when many viruses are more likely to spread. You and your loved ones can take action to help prevent respiratory virus illnesses during the holidays and at other times:
  • Get recommended vaccines against respiratory viruses.
  • Get tested if you have signs or symptoms of a respiratory illness.
  • Talk to your doctor about whether you should get treated with antiviral medication if you have a higher risk for serious illness.
  • Use everyday healthy behaviors, including staying home when sick.

The holiday season can be stressful with all the hustle and bustle, responsibilities, and obligations. Good eating, sleeping, and exercise habits can help keep you healthy also. Be sure to make time to take care of yourself!
