Consider your surroundings, Keep the office clean
Just because the flu has yet to make a major impact across the nation doesn’t mean you won’t catch it. It is true flu activity is, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at “relatively low” levels. But low numbers of flu cases can trick people into thinking they are impervious to the virus this year. Since flu prevention is an imperfect science, no one knows for sure why this season is so mild – explanations include La Niña, global warming and effective vaccinations. However, there is something every company and employee can do to reduce exposure to viruses – keep it clean. Employers can combat the spread germs by maintaining useful policies and processes in the workplace.
