Now that the weather is getting colder, the risk of catching the common cold is on the rise. Symptoms of the cold virus include: a runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, cough and congestion. Don’t let a nasty cold ruin your Thanksgiving dinner. Here are a few ways you can enjoy spending time with your loved ones without getting the common cold:

Stay Inside

Cozy up in the comfort of your own home. Remember to disinfect surfaces and handles. Also, make sure to get plenty of rest. Lack of sleep breaks the immune system, making you more susceptible to catching the common cold when exposed.

Bundle Up

The cold virus is spread more easily during cold weather. Germs replicate best in the body when you’re just below your normal temp of 98.6. Keeping your mouth and nose covered and warm may help decrease your chances of getting sick.
