H1N1 and Transit

I’ve been reading online lately that people are getting paranoid about taking transit for fear of getting H1N1. Sure you could stop taking transit to reduce your risk of getting ill, but then you’d also have to stop going to work, shopping, and going out in general. There are a few things people can do that may help stop the spread of the flu (which, by the way, you should be doing anyway.)

1. Stay home when you are sick (It still shocks me how many people with paid sick time go to work when they are sick.)

2. When you are hacking out a lung, please do so into your elbow (Again, I don’t understand why people don’t do this. People hacking all over the place is one of my pet peeves.)

3. Wash your hands with soap often.

3. Get the Flu shot.
