Apparently (and I quote):
There are ways to prevent the spread of coughs and colds, that don’t involve old wives tales such as chewing on a hawthorn branch while staring at a full moon.
Amazing! I didn’t know!
My employer advises:
- always carry tissues
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
- use disposable tissues and throw them in a bin afterwards
- clean your hands regularly – especially after coughing and sneezing
So, there you go!
But wait! There’s more:
Posters will be circulated round all council buildings reminding people of the simple steps to take to prevent coughs and sneezes.
I can hardly contain myself.
Perhaps they’ll do one on post-toilet hygeine, too. Hopefully, there will be diagrams.
