MADISON (WKOW) -- It's cold and flu season, so now is the time to understand how the virus spreads.
Julie Hitt, from Home Health United, says the virus can be transmitted by coughing, sneezing and sharing saliva. Hitt says any mouth to mouth contact can help spread the virus.
According to Hitt, the virus can spread from adults one day before and five to seven days after getting sick. She says it can transmit without symptoms. In children, Hitt says the virus can be transmitted two to three days before and five to seven days after symptoms appear.
Hitt says there are many ways to prevent ourselves from getting the virus, besides just getting the flu vaccination. She says everyone should wash their hands with antibacterial soap or alcohol based hand sanitizer for a minimum of 15 seconds.
She also says everyone should cover their coughs and sneezes, stay at home when sick, clean surfaces with antibacterial cleaner, and she says not to share drinking glasses and food with others.
Hitt says sleep, vitamin D, exercise, teaching children good cough etiquette and frequent hand washing are way everyone can improve their immunity.
