Oh and I’m not endorsing any of these medicines or vitamins mentioned. Phew that being said, I am simply a slightly germaphobic New Englander who has a plan. So here we go.

1. Prepare.  Collect cold and flu supplies early.

2.Wash your hands often. An oldie but a goodie. Hand sanitizer works in a pinch.
