Will Friday's temperature change make you sick?

CINCINNATI -- You may have noticed our temperatures pushed 70 on Thursday, even though it's early March, and we woke up to lows near 30 on Friday morning.

Those big temperature drops have many in the Tri-State concerned the fluctuating weather will make them sick. Craig Davidson from Hamilton County Public Health said that is not the case.

"It's maybe just an old wives tale, but there's really no science behind that,” Davidson said.

Davidson said if you haven't yet, it's not too late to get a flu vaccination. He also said although temperature change won’t necessarily make someone sick, it can affect people’s sinuses.

"The temperature change doesn't necessarily mean there's an infectious disease in play though,” Davidson said. “Allergies can be in play, the drier air causes people problems during the winter seasons as well."
