- Wash your hands. Simple yet very effective. Most infections are spread by touching things, a dirty doorknob, then touching your face. So wash your hands.
- If you don't have soap and water available, use a hand sanitizer instead. Research has shown that it is almost as effective as soap and water.
- Keep your hands off your face. Sounds dumb, but virus enter your body thru your eyes, nose and mouth. Simply being aware will help keep your hands away from your face. :)
- Finally, get a flu shot. Most pharmacies offer them for low cost. You can not get sick from the flu shot and it does help your body build up immunities that can keep you from getting sick..
Have a healthy winter!
