How not to catch the office cold this year

Dont share your germs

When you work in an office you tend to share things.  You share a pen with an office mate that needs one, you share your lunch with your office bestie, and you share your cold with EVERYONE!  Let’s talk about ways to “insure” that you don’t bring a cold or the flu home from work.

  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Wipe down your phone, keyboard, and other non-porous desk surfaces with an anti-bacterial wipe
  • Work from home until you are well
  • Do not cough or sneeze into your hands, use a tissue or the crook of your elbow

There is no magic pill that can make the common cold go away, all we can do is muddle through it.  Take a moment to follow these 5 tips and keep yourself and your officemates healthy this cold and flu season.
