(Health and Wellness) Working with kids, crowds, means increased flu/colds risk
This year, the seasonal flu and H1N1 seem to be on everyone’s mind. If you work with kids or in a heavily populated area, you are at a higher risk of catching some form of the flu or common cold.
Last year during the week of 10/5/08, there were 30 cases of the flu reported nationwide. The week of 10/5/09, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), reported 215 cases of the flu nationwide in elementary schools.
