Cover the Cough and Sneeze
"Droplet spread" is the medical term for what you're aiming to conquer. Adults and older children should sneeze and cough into tissues and throw them away immediately. Place boxes of tissues in multiple, convenient locations. Carrying a travel-size packet of tissues in your pocket or purse is a good idea, too. Caught without a tissue? Use the waitresses' old trick: Cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm, or into your shoulder. After you sneeze or cough—you guessed it—wash your hands.
