Can my child catch a cold without a hat?
Hats help prevent frost bite and provide comfort, but a hat will not keep your child from getting sick because illnesses do not come from exposure to cold air. We become ill from exposure to other people who are ill and are shedding respiratory viruses in saliva and snot and tears or intestinal germs in saliva and stool. Any surface freshly contaminated with these body fluids, even in miniscule amounts, are a source for illness transmission.
Why are there more illnesses in the winter?
Part of the answer is that the population is in closer proximity to each other in temperate climates such as Ohio since the population is indoors—more dense occupation of the population’s living environs—creating an increased probability of germ transmission from person to person.
