Cold & Flu Season
Follow these tips to stay healthy and keep others healthy this season: Wash your hands frequently using soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rinse; avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth; and cover your mouth or tuck it into your elbow when coughing or sneezing.
Cold Weather Allergies
Pollen-based allergens can stay in the air well into late fall, check pollen.com for our local Gettysburg forecast. Other winter allergy triggers that are not pollen-based include airborne mold. An appointment may be needed for any persistent sore throat, runny nose, or post nasal drip.
With less daylight, many of us are exercising and walking our pets at dusk or after sunset. Wearing reflective gear or carrying a flashlight can help you stay safe and healthy during your evening activities. Without these simple precautions, drivers can have a difficult time seeing you.
