Summer travel and vacations to popular tourist spots can expose us to more germs.

We’ve just passed the unofficial start of summer, but Dr. Barbara Bawer says it’s not a time to take our health for granted.

Dr. Bawer is a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

“Just because we’re past the winter months, which are the typical months when we think of people having flu and cold and COVID and all these other viruses, because, you know, it’s colder and because we’re indoors, it doesn’t mean that these things cannot happen the rest of the year,” said Bawer.

The CDC says enteroviruses, which come more often this time of year, can lead to summer flu or other infections like hand, foot and mouth disease.

Children are more likely than adults to become sick from enteroviruses, and most cases are mild. Summer travel and vacations to popular tourist spots can expose us to more germs that can cause sickness.
