Flu season is in full swing and its effects have been making headlines all across the country.
So if you're traveling over the next month or so - or anytime - take these steps to help keep germs and the flu virus away from you and your family.
- Get the flu vaccine
- Wash hands regularly
- Carry travel-size wipes or gel hand sanitizer with you
- Cover your cough or sneeze - and teach your children to do the same
- Pack antibacterial wipes for use on a plane or in a hotel to clean surfaces - especially airline trays, armrests, hotel remote control, door handles, etc.
- Stay hydrated - drink lots of water!
