Bundle up for cold weather, mask up to prevent the spread

The weather is changing, and colder temperatures will be moving into Marin County beginning Friday (tomorrow).  While the weather’s effect on COVID-19 is still up for debate, it’s no secret that human behavior during colder months can be a factor in virus spread.

During the winter months, its not unusual for people to interact more indoors to escape the cold. Unfortunately, these warm respites are often areas with poor ventilation, which can effective environments for transmission.  

In addition, flu season is just around the corner. Last year in the US, there were 40 times as many flu cases in fall and winter than the previous spring and summer.  

Practicing protective strategies of socially distancing, wearing a mask, and avoiding congregating indoors are simple steps that can help reduce your risk of exposure to both COVID-19 and seasonal influenza during this time of year.

So, remember… as you bundle up to escape the chilly temps, be sure to incorporate a face covering into your wardrobe and a plan to stay safe.
