Cold and Flu Cases Expected To Rise

Amarillo Health experts expect cold and flu numbers are expected to rise once students return to school this year.

The flu spreads on surfaces and in the air to other people, and as kids return to school in the fall, doctors say there’s a good chance it will spread.

Amarillo health experts recommend getting your flu shot between late September and early October with flu season starting in September.

They also say what we’ve been doing throughout the pandemic will help keep the flu and common cold numbers from rising.

Other strategies Health experts recommend are keeping areas clean, washing your hands, and social distancing.
