What do you do, if anything, to avoid getting sick from co-workers, etc, this time of year? Or do you just see it as an "occupational hazard?"

During my years working with the surgeons I received a memo from the CDC about how to prevent/treat symptoms of H1N1 flu, an epidemic at the time. I've hung onto it all these years, amended it a bit and often pass it around. I have friends who work in early childhood ed, public school teachers and even my students while I was library services supervisor....I was in a new school last year, kept hand sanitizer & tissues on  my desk to help my students learn to manage illness ...I wasn't sick at all last year, very unusual in a new environment.

I try to eat a lot of fruit & take Emergen C which comes in little packets of raspberry, tangerine, blueberry, etc.  It tastes pretty good.  You an take it everyday for immune support,  or if I feel like I'm getting like a sore throat or runny nose; I take 1 packet & mix with water or juice 1 time a day and I feel better the next day or 2.  If you stop it before it gets you, you are good.

Sounds like some good ideas, ladies!

@All - Anyone else?
