As of March 20st, spring is officially in the air and the United States braces for yet another epidemic
of Spring Fever. Researchers at the CDC in Atlanta are studying to see if this year’s strain of spring fever will be as virulent than last year’s due to this past winter’s lack of germ-killing snow & ice and unseasonably warm temperatures. People living in the “Spring Fever Belt” (north of the Mason Dixon line) are at particular risk for all strains of Spring Fever.
Though too early to predict if this will be a mild or serious epidemic, here are several things one can do to prevent catching spring fever:
- Stop and smell the roses
- Eat an apple a day
- Drink plenty of green tea
- Get plenty of fresh air
- Contact local S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder) chapter
See you doctor if you have any of the following symptoms:
1. Frequent urge to go outside and play
6. Dirt under you fingernails
7. Urge to skip
Should you catch Spring Fever, do not despair. Doctors and researchers are working round the clock on drugs to ameliorate symptoms. A cure remains elusive but the WTF (Winter Time Federation) is actively seeking funding to begin vaccination trials.
