Upper respiratory infections

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we share helpful information regarding respiratory infections.

In Henrico, Dr. Patrick Woodward is treating upper respiratory infections.

A few simple rules can go a long way to helping every one stay well.

Wash your hands with soap and water before eating and after using the bathroom. If you must sneeze or cough, do so into the crook of your elbow and not your hand or the air.

Finally, if you are ill or producing mucous, be kind to your friends and relatives and stay home or wear a mask.
