Cold and Flu Season

With the colder weather approaching, I am reminded that cold and flu season is around the corner. I thought I'd give everyone a little reminder about keeping our germs to ourselves. I'm not a Germaphobe, but when I saw this clip it made me want to start washing my hands more frequently.

Here is a video clip of people sneezing in slow motion. It's an ad for flu shots, but I think it's a good reminder of how germs are spread. By the way, the proper protocol for dealing with a sneeze or cough these days is to turn your head into your upper arm/shoulder instead of your hands.



Sorry for grossing you out. Thank goodness for sneeze guards at the salad bar!
