Healthy Habits to Carry your Family Through the End of Cold and Flu Season

Practice healthy habits throughout cold and flu season to make it to the finish line!

We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. The end of winter is within sight, and with it – we hope – is the end of cold and flu season. Even with spring just around the corner, however, it is important to remember that we are still in the midst of peak cold and flu. Practicing healthy habits is just as important now as ever, to help get you and your loved ones through the end of the season in good health.

The National Parent Teacher Association and Lysol® want to ensure children and families are practicing healthy habits every day through the rest of cold and flu season with a few easy tips:

  • Wash your hands: Regular hand washing with soap and water (for at least 20 seconds!) can help protect you from spreading germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer until you can use soap and water.[i]
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth: When germs are on your hands, they can enter the body through the eyes, nose and mouth! Avoid touching these areas, especially if you have not recently washed your hands. [ii]
  • Start a cleaning and disinfecting routine: Clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces at home, school and work a few times each week. Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes kill up to 99.9% of germs, including those that cause cold and flu, and are safe to use on most hard, non-porous surfaces, including electronics. Donating wipes to your child’s school is also a great way to help curbs the spread of germs in the classroom!
  • Stay home when you’re sick: If you adopt all of these habits and you or your children still get sick, make sure to stay home from work or school to avoid passing illness to others.[iii]
