I’m sick. Like, coughing, runny nose, puffy face sick. One might think with as much as I fly, I’d be sick all the time. That isn’t the case, however. In fact, last year I only had a few quick sore throats that were easily fended off with sleep and fluids.
Did that make you want to take a shower immediately, not to mention Lysol down your carry on bag?
And how do you do that properly? Well, the CDC has instructions for you.
And side note, I am a firm believer in never using hand sanitizer. I especially would not use one when traveling as they increase the absorption of BPA, which is abundant in the thermal paper that makes up most receipts and boarding passes. Even the CDC says washing hands with soap and water is the best way to remove microbes, and suggests only use sanitizer if no soap and water is available.
Anyway, I’ll just go back to drinking my Yogi Throat Comfort Tea and waiting for this thing to pass while covering my sneezes with tissues.
