While the 2017-2018 flu season has been a significant challenge for many individuals this past winter and early spring, it is not over yet. As March is coming to a close, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn us of yet another threat at the tail end of this devastating flu season, the rise of influenza B. With over half of all confirmed flu cases in the week of March 12 caused by influenza B, now more than ever, it is time to strengthen sanitation measures for your business.
Who is Most Affected by This Strain?
Among the thousands of individuals affected by this spike of influenza B, children and elderly people are the most at risk with its symptoms. Beginning with a fever, this particular strain of the flu is known to later result in more advanced symptoms such as stomach and respiratory issues in the days following the initial fever. One major threat of these symptoms is the risk of such respiratory issues evolving into illnesses such as pneumonia or bronchitis, as these can illnesses can often present serious threats to children and older adults with weaker immune systems.
Keep Viruses Out of Your Business
Although it may be a gross thought, the flu is typically spread by tiny droplets of contaminated mucus or saliva that are left on surfaces such as those in your restroom. Most often transferred on hands that touch surfaces such as door and faucet handles, the flu can even withstand the efforts of everyday products. Because these viruses lurk on any and all surfaces unless they are treated with professional cleaning solutions, your business’ restroom may really be in need of a professional hygiene service before the spring. If you are looking to have your restroom professionally sanitized in the near future, call the professionals for sanitation, air freshening, and supply stocking services that are sure to keep your customers happy and employees healthy throughout the year. By utilizing a professional hygiene service, you are ensuring that the surfaces in your restroom are sanitized, the air in your facilities is fresh, and that supplies such as hand sanitizer and paper products are always well maintained for regular use.
