Flu cases on the rise nationwide, how you can stay healthy this holiday season

first_imgRises in flu cases happen more often this time of year for a few reasons, most notably the colder weather. So wash your hands, cover those coughs and sneezes, and disinfect when you can. Also, it’s never too late to vaccinate. Even though there hasn’t been a dramatic spike in flu cases, it doesn’t mean the numbers are holding completely steady. (WBNG) — Flu cases are on the rise across the country, just as the holiday season reaches its peak. Thankfully, according to health professionals, the Southern Tier hasn’t seen such a sudden rise. “In terms of the people that I’ve seen with symptoms that are flu-like, when I have tested them, we haven’t seen that they’ve come up positive,” said Lourdes Internist Physician Monika Freeland. It’s important to take all the preventative measures to protect everyone, especially with the holidays right around the corner.center_img “I know we just haven’t seen nearly what other people are seeing, but in the last two weeks we have seen a moderate increase,” said Broome County Health Department Public Health Nurse Marianne Yourdon. “You’re protecting babies that don’t have the immunity you might have as a young person. You’re also protecting the elderly. So, if you’re getting together with you’re grandparents over the Christmas holidays,” said Freeland. “I hope everybody is healthy. It’s still pretty quiet here in Broome County and I know it’s starting to increase, but get the flu shot. It’s never too late, until June 30th when it expires,” said Yourdon. “People are confined to their homes, they’re not getting out. When you have a lot of people in a small area you’re more likely to touch something and then spread the flu around in that manner, or you cough and someone else picks it up,” said Freeland.last_img read more
