Healthy Holiday Travel Tips

Healthy Holiday Travel Tips

By Dr. Bruce Kaler, U.S. HealthWorks

Here are some tips to make sure you reach your destination this holiday season without contracting a nasty cold or the flu.

Get a flu vaccine as soon as possible: The current vaccine is widely available in almost all communities. It takes a minimum of two weeks to develop any immunity after receiving the flu shot. Although this requires acting soon and planning ahead, it is the absolute most important factor.

Get adequate rest the night before travel: Having seven to eight hours of restorative sleep will give you a fighting chance of resisting whatever exposure you get when traveling. Travel days are usually long and hectic.

The El Dorado County Department of Transportation (DOT) expects construction on the $27.7 million median widening of U.S. 50 thorough El Dorado Hills to be completed in fall 2011. Completion of the 4-mile long project will add carpool lanes in each direction of U.S. 50 from the County line to Bass Lake Road, widen Latrobe Road and El Dorado Hills Boulevard under U.S. 50, replace all of the bridges that carry U.S 50 traffic over Latrobe Road and El Dorado Hills Boulevard, and widen the bridges that carry U.S. 50 traffic over Silva Valley Parkway and Bass Lake Road.

Bids for the project were opened on October 30, 2008.
