As the days grow colder in Hudson Valley, people start spending more and more time indoors, with little ventilation, and often in relative proximity to each other. This makes it the ideal time for viruses, such as the flu, to be spread rapidly throughout the community. This leads to a lot of fear and uncertainty in regard to whether businesses are safe places for customers and employees. Keeping your building free of any contaminants or viruses is critical to staying operational over the winter.
Why Does the Flu Season Happen?
In addition to providing the ideal environment for close interactions between individuals, there are other reasons why the flu is far more prevalent in the winter. The limited exposure to sunlight leads to lower levels of Vitamin D, which weaken our immune system, making us ideal targets. Viruses like the flu also survive better in colder weather, allowing them to live longer on any surfaces we interact with. That means that even if you’re covering your coughs and staying at a reasonable distance from others, you could infect them by simply touching a door handle or chair that is later touched by another person.
