Cold and flu season is approaching. As the months get colder and folks are indoors more often, these respiratory illnesses often spread in close quarters.
Flu activity begins to increase in October and often peaks between December and January, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition to the flu, several other respiratory viruses circulate, such as rhinovirus and RSV, causing cold-like symptoms. And of course, COVID is still a threat as well.
