|Ontario, Canada – Most parts of North America may be in for a pretty severe flu season this year, based on the latest reports in the New England Journal of Medicine* and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
But here’s something we have to know. Just because we have stuffy noses, sneezing, sniffling, itchy eyes, coughs, and just don’t feel well, we may not have the flu.
Maybe it’s an allergy or just a bad cold. The symptoms are surprisingly similar.

Avmor also suggests ways cleaning professionals can keep themselves and building users healthier during flu season and throughout the year. Among them are the following:
“And based on our guide, if you determine you have the flu, don’t work,” says Mike Watt, with Avmor. “Take a couple of days off and get better so you don’t pass the flu on to anyone else.”
