Washington naturalist Pam Holz doesn’t want any misunderstandings about the threat of H1N1. Holz says the scare over H1N1 is similar to the fear of other illnesses like West Nile Virus in years past. She says many people are hesitant to spend time outdoors or be active with the threat of influenza looming. Holz says germs travel much faster in confined indoor environments, and spending time outdoors can help a person feel healthier both physically and mentally.
