It's that time again! Family, friends, fun, and flu. It's a busy time for all of us. Family coming to visit. Trips to see family. Lots of friends. And unfortunately it's also cold and flu season.

Healthy habits of nose blowing, cough covering, and constant hand washing cut back on the spread of germs.
