Stay Healthy This Winter

Continue to be vigilant against COVID. Even if you’ve had COVID in the past, the virus continues to change. This means you may not be immune from the newest mutations and you could become stricken with COVID-like symptoms again.

The virus is exhausting—it may take you a while to recover. So, stay healthy this winter by eating plenty of soup and drinking a lot of fluids. Be sure to get your sleep. And spend time in the sunshine to further help reduce your chances of contracting a virus. Prepare yourself with the essentials to protect against COVID by keeping masks and test kits nearby. Test yourself if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms. And keep a thermometer around to check your fever. Consider Tylenol (or whatever is recommended by your physician) as a fever reducer.

Call your doctor if you are positive or if symptoms continue. Be sure to get your boosters, especially if you’re age 65 or older. The CDC recommends waiting three months from the time you’ve had COVID before getting another booster. And be sure to inquire about being eligible for any antiviral treatments to reduce the odds of a severe case of COVID.
