Coughing and Sneezing 101
There’s been a lot of sneezing and coughing going around and it’s not all undercover. Just think, a cough travels 60 mph! If a tissue isn’t at hand, go for the elbow. And if your elbow isn't convenient or if you're worried that you're going to make your cashmere or cotton sick, go for a cupped hand. (If you're going to do it, do it right.) But, sanitize after this germy act as soon as possible. And, please, whatever you do, don't shake hands or dig into a bowl of nuts.
So, why don’t we make this National Sneeze and Cough Right Day or Week? Or just introduce yourself to your inner elbow.
