Summer Colds and School

It’s that time of year when the cool from inside and the heat from outside result in some Colds, Runny Noses, Coughs and Congestion.

Normally it wouldn’t cause much concern but in CV-19 times, it means school absence as precaution, in accordance with Nagoya City Regulations.

We’ve compiled some tips that we’ve found really help getting through summer without the summer cold.

Some tips to avoid the summer sniffles.

☀️Clean your air-conditioner filters regularly.

☀️Avoid sleeping in the direct flow of the air-conditioned air.

☀️Add fans to direct airflow.

☀️Sleep in PJ’s if using aircon 24/7

☀️Use humidifier to keep moisture in the room. Or

☀️Use dehumidifier with air cleaner depending on your room condition.

☀️Always have a light jacket handy if rooms get too chilly.

☀️Increase Vitamin C intake through yummy fruits and healthy juices.

☀️After sweaty play at parks or on outings, change wet clothes, especially cotton items.

We hope some of these tips help you stay cool but not “cough, cough” cold.
