This winter season has been tough for everyone due to the #Flu. Everyone knows of someone that has the flu or had it. You may even know people who have gotten it multiple times this season already.
Five places you should try to avoid so you will not get sick this season:
- Touch screen self-service computers.
You might ask why to think about it someone is carrying the flu sneezes and then touches the screen passing their germs on to you. The screen can be found at the ATM, Supermarket, etc. Use gloves when coming in contact with one and hand sanitizer.
2. An airplane bathroom.
Think about 50+ passengers in an airplane. enough said.
3. Refillable soap dispenser.
Germs attach to things that you touch and linger. You do not clean the public dispenser and multiple people touch them. These dispensers can be found in restaurants, cafeterias, mall etc. It is touched many times throughout the day so please use a napkin or paper towel when you are in contact with them.
4. Restaurant tables
Tables come into contact with customers daily. Sometimes the tables are not cleaned every time someone new sits down. Think about the mall when you go eat the next time. The tables are dirty and germs linger. If you find a matron that cleans the tables ask them to wipe it down for you or carry your own Lysol wipes. Every bit helps to kill germs.
5. Touching grocery carts.
Again we sneeze and cough into our hands and you use your hands to push the shopping cart. Your babies sometimes bite onto the handle bars. You get the picture. This is where carrying wipes with you helps. Keep your gloves on, once home if you can disinfect them do so.
Please remember to cover your mouth when you sneeze and cough. If possible wear a mask and disposable gloves. Carry a hand sanitizer with you and Lysol wipes. Every bit that we can do to stop the spread of germs will help stop the spread of the #flu.
