Winter can be rough. Along with the snow and freezing temperatures comes dry skin and tough commutes. But there’s also a heightened potential for getting sick from things like the flu. The dreaded flu season runs from late fall to early spring, so it’s not over yet. If you haven’t had the flu yet this year, keep reading to learn how you can make it out of the season with your health intact.
The headache, fever, cough, sore throat and congestion that accompanies the flu can range from uncomfortable to downright dangerous in some instances. In most cases, the virus means several days of downtime, but for the young and the elderly, the flu can result in hospitalization.
Luckily, there are quite a few things you can do to prevent yourself from becoming sick. The first and most important prevention method is to get the flu shot at the beginning of the season. Beyond that, avoid coming into contact with people who show flu-like symptoms or have shown such symptoms in the past 7 days. In addition, avoid touching any surfaces you know haven’t been cleaned recently, including door handles, ATMs and public transportation handles.
While it might seem impractical to not touch such things, the Gryp Keychain Silicone Germaphobe Door Handle Opener allows you to put a barrier between you and any lurking germs. Built for germaphobes but ideal for flu season, these door openers are made from soft, flexible silicone, which is germ resistant and super simple to wash.
Each Gryp Keychain contains one piece of silicone that wraps around onto itself to provide a cone for protecting your fingers. The tab closure keeps the silicone in the cone shape and can be adjusted to fit all finger sizes.
As an added bonus, this pack contains 4 brightly colored Gryp Keychain Door Handle Openers. Share with your family and friends to ensure no one becomes ill this flu season and beyond.
