How to Avoid Amarillo’s Crazy Flu Going Around
I don't where it came from but it seems like EVERYONE has the flu. I have some friends that work at a local urgent care in Amarillo and they shared with me that they had a four-hour wait for patients because the flu has gotten so bad.
I believe it! Local daycares have had to temporarily close their doors due to the flu and the Amarillo fire department even had to reschedule a public safety event to help prevent the flu.
Here are a few tips to help keep you and your family healthy this year.
Avoid sharing food
I know that hot sauce looks yummy, but seriously... double dipping can lead to the flu.
Get enough sleep
Studies have proven that getting the right amount of sleep can boost your immune system.
Keep the windows closed
The weather has been on the nice side lately so you may be tempted to crack your windows. Probably not a good idea, if a sneezy neighbor can't stop those germs can come to your house.
Keep your lips off infected partners
If bae is sick, let the makeout session wait.
Wash your hands after touching any communal surfaces
Gas station counter, light switch, office doorknob. Whatever it is make sure to wash your hands!
Keep things away from your mouth
If you zone out and put a pen to your mouth or maybe you wipe your mouth with your hand when you think...either way watch your habits and keep your mouth away from possible extra germs
