Sick Woman

If everyone in your office is coughing and sneezing and calling out sick, you’re bound to get sick, too.  The best way to avoid getting sick from your office mates to prep before the cold/flu season begins.

Here are a few ways you can avoid catching that office cold:

  1. Get vaccinated for the flu: This is the best way to prevent getting the flu and can even lessen your symptoms if you do happen to get sick.
  2. Keep your office space sanitized: When you know colds are being passed around the office, it’s best to keep your work space as germ free as possible by sanitizing surfaces such as your desk, keyboard, and phone.
  3. Avoid shaking hands: Most people are understanding during cold and flu season.  But if you don’t want to come off as rude, but sure to keep hand sanitizer readily available, or make sure you can wash your hands when you’re finished with the interaction.
  4. Avoid commonly used items: The door handle, the coffee pot, the water fountain: all loaded with germs from your coworkers.  Be sure to avoid these areas when you can, or find alternatives.
  5. Stay home when you’re sick: If you’re feeling under the weather, take advantage of your sick time.  Your coworkers will thank you.
