Tips to Protect Yourself and Stay Healthy this Holiday Season. Sponsored by: Abbott

SAN DIEGO — Whether it’s due to travel, the changing weather or gathering together, staying healthy over the winter and during the holidays can be a challenge.

Pediatrician Dr. Syeda Amna Husain joins our Laura Cavanaugh to share tips on how to survive and thrive this yuletide season.

Dr. Amna Husain recommends keeping your medicine cabinet stocked because illness strikes when you’re not prepared for it.

“Keeping stock of things that might be really helpful -  a thermometer, saline, nasal aspirators, oral rehydration supplements, making sure you have enough COVID-19 Self Tests that, if you do get sick, you can appropriately test and make sure you’re not positive for SARS-CoV-2,” said Dr. Amna Husain.

Binax Now COVID-19 Self Tests allow you to be able to test early and frequently with accuracy.  They are readily available over-the-counter at local retailers. It’s the same technology that your doctor uses. And the tests are FSA/HSA eligible.

In terms of other recommendations from the doctor, hand washing, mask wearing, staying hydrated and staying home when you feel sick still apply.
