You know how your mother always told you to put on a hat in the cold weather or you’ll catch a cold? Well, that’s not exactly accurate. The cold alone can’t make you sick. It takes a virus or bacteria to bring on illnesses like the common cold, flu, and stomach bugs. You could stand outside with wet hair in the freezing cold for a week and if the germs aren’t there, you won’t catch a cold. You’ll probably get hypothermia, but you won’t catch a cold!  Still, while mom may have been wrong on that count, cold weather can impact health in many others ways.

Just remember, spring isn’t far away!

How do you keep your family safe in the cold weather?
