While there is no known 100% fool-proof method for avoiding these illnesses, there are ways lessen the chances chances of getting sick or making others ill, whether at home or work.
Be Mindful of Frequent Points of Contact

During this time of the year, you will want to routinely clean these surfaces as often as you can! We recommend using disinfectant wipes.
Follow the Directions!
Disinfectant sprays and wipes are truly amazing! However, they are most effective when used according to their directions. The part which is most often missed is that you must apply your disinfectant to the surface and allow that to sit for the recommended time found on the product label. This gives the disinfectant time to work. After that you can wipe the surface to clean any residue left by the disinfectant.
Things You Can Do at Home
If one or more of your family members becomes sick, there are ways to try to prevent germs from spreading in your home. We recommend things such as:
Routine washing of soft items such as towels, blankets, bath-cloths, and stuffed animals.
Frequent bedding changes as washing of those linens
Routine washing of children's toys with a disinfectant soap or bleach
Keep tissues around so that anyone who is sick can cover their mouth or noses
Create a habit of hand-washing as soon as you enter the home
