Summer getaways are gearing up. But did you know that you're more likely to get sick while traveling?
Medical experts say traveling can be stressful. More people are around, and travelers tend not to eat or sleep as well. This can make it harder for your body to fight off illness.
The top travel bugs to be aware of include the common cold, viral illnesses and norovirus.
“People think of them as kind of fall-winter type of diseases, but that's actually inaccurate,” said medical expert Dr. Barbara Bawer.

Tips to stay healthy this summer:

  • Keep hands clean.
  • Try to move away from those coughing and sneezing.
  • Consider wearing a mask when in enclosed spaces.
