Warriors stuffed up with common cold


Washing your hands can help prevent common colds.

    As cold and flu season continues, students are experiencing the common symptoms that come with it. The school nurse said students usually come in experiencing “coughing, stomach aches, nausea, vomiting, and some say diarrhea.”

    He also said the number of students unexpectedly coming in per day “varies daily from around five to fifteen,” and “I also see students daily.”

     When asked what symptoms students are most commonly coming in with, the nurse said, “cough and cold and sometimes headache are what I’ve recently seen most.”

     In order to prevent enduring symptoms like these, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends washing your hands with soap and water, avoid touching your facial area with unwashed hands, and to avoid being around people who may be sick.
