The health of athletes is critical in keeping a team at the top of its game. In addition, healthy athletes drive down the risk of absenteeism and increase chances of success. There are several illnesses that can impact a sports team, such as:
- The flu (influenza)
- The mumps
- Hepatitis A, B and C
- Legionnaires’ disease
These viruses are easily transmittable in the air and through contact with an infected individual.
Sports environments are susceptible to the spreading of these illnesses for several reasons:
- Sports equipment is often shared among teammates
- Perspiration and breathing increase the circulation of a virus in the air
- Regular, physical contact between athletes is common
- The many shared spaces accumulate bacteria
For instance, several cases of the mumps were found with NHL pro hockey players recently:
- 7 players for the Vancouver Canucks in 2017
- 3 members of the Minnesota Wild (including Zach Parise and Jason Pominville)
- 29 NHL players from 2014-2015 (including Sidney Crosby)
It’s therefore important to hire an infection decontamination service that’s specialized in sports environments to stop the spread of these illnesses and prevent them from affecting sports team athletes’ health.
Simple habits can also help in the prevention of infections in athletes: regular hand-washing, using only one’s own equipment, not sharing water bottles, avoiding direct physical contact, etc.
