Coughs and Colds

During wintertime, it's not uncommon to hear that people have come down with a nasty cold or are off work with the flu (influenza). 

Colds and flus are both illnesses that affect our airways and how we breathe. They are commonly confused with one another because they share many common symptoms.

It’s helpful to know the difference between a cold and the flu, as well as what to do when you or someone you are caring for has flu-like symptoms.
