Avoiding the flu

I hope you're doing well!


If you're like me, you hate catching a cold or flu. So I thought you'd be interested in some tips on eliminating germs in your home. These are based on recommendations from the U.S. and Canadian departments of health.


  • You're much more likely to catch a bug from a handshake than a cough. So wash your hands regularly.


  • You are 200 times more likely to pick up a germ in the kitchen than in any other room in the home -- including the bathroom. So give your kitchen top priority with cleaning.


  • Most people keep countertops clean and sanitized. But don't forget other surfaces that can also carry germs, like computer keyboards, children's toys, phones, and door knobs.


  • If you need to cough or sneeze, and don't have a tissue handy, use the shoulder of your sleeve rather than your hand.


By taking some simple precautions, experts say you can reduce yours, and your family's, risk of getting a cold, flu or bacterial infection by as much as 50%.


That's something to think about!


As I said, I hope you're doing well -- and I also hope you stay well!
