Prepare for an uncertain cold and flu season.
Last winter, COVID-19 measures effectively shut down the spread of cold and flu, but as we all get back to work and school, respiratory illnesses are expected to make a comeback.
While we can’t predict what this season will bring, we can control how we protect our spaces against viruses that cause cold, flu, and COVID-19.
- Colds are most frequently caused by Rhinovirus
- Flu, or influenza, is caused by Influenza A or B
- COVID-19 is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus
Viruses can be spread by a simple cough or sneeze from an infected person and can survive in the air and on surfaces for hours, days, or even weeks.
It’s important to understand how viruses spread and what steps you can take to help prevent infection in your facility.
