Housecall for Health: Keeping Healthy After Sandy
While residents are trying to rebuild their homes and their lives in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, it’s important to remember to protect yourself during clean-up from a major disaster like this.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon has the key points in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
Hurricane Sandy continues to affect people on the East Coast, but a number of illnesses can be avoided. Emergency room doctors at Downstate Hospital tell FOX News Health scrapes and cuts during clean-up require a tetanus shot, and you should wear boots and gloves to avoid touching harmful mold.
Risk for disease is heightened, so maintaining good hygiene is key. Be careful about spoiled food, and check with local officials about drinking tap water.
