Most cold and flu viruses are spread by either direct contact or by air. Someone who has a cold or the flu sneezes onto their hand, and then touches something that you or your child later touch or they sneeze and you breathe the particles in. The germs can live for hours -- in some cases weeks on an object!
The flu usually causes body aches and pains, but also comes with a fever and extreme fatigue where a cold usually comes with mild fatigue, stuffy nose, cough and congestion. Use this handout to get more information on figuring out if you have a cold or the flu, how to prevent it and some treatment tips!
