Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
With winter continuing on and hitting hard, Michigan residents should be preparing for the height of cold and flu season before the seasons change. During the cold winter and early spring months, when humidity is lowest, the chances of catching a virus are much higher. In fact, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases reports that while colds can happen at any time of the year, the most common cold-causing viruses thrive in the cold weather. As area residents around the state know, winter is a time where it is important to be prepared for not only the weather, but to take health precautions, as well.
While colds aren’t the only type of sickness to be prevalent in the winter, they do tend to be the most common. While there may still be no cure yet for the common cold, it is still easy to stay prepared for the ongoing epidemic of runny noses and coughs with a few simple steps and precautions. This year, Ann Arbor’s own Finn’s JM&J Insurance Agency is excited to help Michigan residents continue weathering the winter months with some cold weather safety and health awareness tips.
- Stay Bundled.
To endure the storms and chilly temperatures of the Midwest, residents should take precautions to stay warm. Keep a stockpile of firewood at home, load up the car with emergency blankets, and wear a few extra layers to work. While staying warm will not completely prevent viruses from thriving in the cold weather, it can still pay to play it safe and stay bundled up.
- Stay Prepared.
When sickness does strike, it is important to already be stocked up on the essentials. From soup and tissues to hand sanitizer and over-the-counter medicine, it is worth it to have cabinets throughout the home supplied with important at-home remedies to keep the family cared for. With a drastic increase in colds during the frosty—and usually very snowy—Michigan winter, nobody wants to be left sick and unprepared. Be ready sooner rather than later.
- Stay Insured.
Health problems can occur any time of the year, and it is always best to be prepared. With winter sicknesses extremely common, Finn’s JM&J Insurance Agency wants Michigan residents to realize how important it is to be covered with a health insurance policy to protect themselves and their families before sickness strikes, not after. Not only will the right health policy cover emergency room visits and hospital stays, but it can also cover regular doctor’s appointments and prescription medications. As the winter season progresses, residents must recognize that safety and preparedness should come first. Don’t wait to get insured.
