The pandemic has started to ramp up due to the increase in COVID-19 cases caused by the delta variant, a highly contagious SARS-CoV-2 virus strain. This virus strain has prolonged the pandemic despite vaccination efforts. Individuals throughout the United States are striving to get back to normalcy even with recent increases in virus cases; ensuring you stay healthy is a top priority more than ever. Check out these tips to boost your immune system:

  • Limit alcohol intake
  • Eat lots of fruits and vegetables

  • Exercise regularly
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Get adequate sleep (8 hours/night)
