Like sweaters, autumn leaves and pumpkin spice lattes, the flu comes back every fall, but the 2020 flu season is unique. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s especially important to take steps to help prevent the spread of the flu. NSF is offering tips to help you and your family become powerful “flu fighters” this year.
“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever this year to protect yourself and the people around you, and to help reduce the strain on our health care systems during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said NSF Senior Certification Project Manager and germ expert Lisa Yakas. “Good health habits like avoiding people who are sick, covering your cough and frequently washing your hands can help stop the spread of germs and prevent illnesses like the flu. But there are many housekeeping tactics you can use to help stop the spread of flu and other viruses.”
NSF is a global public health organization, with more than 75 years of experience protecting the water we drink, the food we eat, the air we breathe and the environment we share.
