A growing number of medical professionals suggest wearing face masks again once the weather forces us to stay indoors more. It may seem like COVID-19 is a thing of the past right now, but that might soon change when we have to work in office buildings or factories that are not well ventilated. We should be concerned about more than just COVID this autumn. A new flu season is also upon us. Our immune system’s ability to fight off the flu may have been weakened by the lockdowns of the past two years, doctors and nurses believe. You can probably keep yourself and your family safe this fall and winter by wearing a face mask whenever you are in a crowded area, checking for fever twice a day (when we wake up in the morning and before we go to bed in the evening) and always taking a self-test whenever we are feeling unwell. Fever is the common factor and can be easily measured by a thermometer like the temporal artery thermometer of Exergen!
