As the winter approaches we’re starting to hear COVID pop up in the news again. And while we may not see the same kind of overwhelmed healthcare system as we did a few years ago, COVID is still very much of a concern.
Winter makes it easier to fall victim to COVID because of the combination of the weather, large gatherings and spending more time indoors than outdoors.
No one likes getting sick, so it’s in everyone’s best interest to stay healthy. To help you, here are some of the best tips for staying safe from COVID this winter season.
Taking vitamins is an important part of boosting your immune system so that if you do catch COVID you’ll be less likely to have to go to a health clinic. Take a daily multivitamin as well as plenty of vitamin C.
In addition to supplements, make sure that you eat a diet rich in plenty of vitamins and nutrients. While supplements are undoubtedly beneficial, nothing replaces the value of nutrients found in whole foods.
Limit Gathering in Large Groups
Although wintertime is full of plenty of reasons to get together with people you love, the truth is you put yourself more at risk of spreading bugs like COVID and the flu. If you hope to slow down the spread, try to avoid large gatherings.
Even just one sick person can pass it on to the next, who in turn will pass it on to everyone in their household, and pretty soon they pass it on to their friends and so on. The smaller your social circle is, the less likely you are to not only transmit illness but also catch it.
Don’t put away your masks just yet! Masks are still very much recommended as one of the most practical ways to stay healthy and COVID-free. Masks help you reduce the chances of inhaling the virus through the air or transferring it to other people by exhaling droplets in your breath that contain the virus.
Above all, make sure that you practice healthy mask-wearing habits. Always wear a mask that snugly fits your face and doesn’t expose your mouth or nose.
The rules haven’t changed! Ventilation is still one of your greatest tools for clearing out the air. Open the windows at least once an hour to increase airflow and increased ventilation. In addition to encouraging airflow in indoor spaces, you should also consider using air purifiers. Air purifiers can improve the air quality and reduce the chances of transmitting the virus.
Stay Up to Date
It’s important that you stay up to date with the latest COVID developments and updates in your area. In the event that there is a large breakout, you want to make sure that you know what to do.
Remain flexible, be prepared, and stay safe. While the winter months may increase your chances of catching COVID, that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy them. It’s all about taking the right measures, and everyone doing their part to reduce the spread.
