Contagious bugs abound during the holiday season, making it a good time to take hand hygiene seriously. According to the American medical Association (AMA), hand washing is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of colds, flu and other infectious diseases.

AMA advice: Later up with soap and water for at least 15 seconds after using the bathroom, before preparing food or eating, and after visiting public places. To help control germs scrub under your fingernails and keep them trimmed short.

Best all-purpose cleaners: Hands down, it??s plain soap. Alcohol-based towelettes are a quick and easy alternative; no water is needed ?V just apply and rub until dry.

More Ways to Avoid Infection:

?h Avoid using shared items, like phones, tools, keyboards or other work equipment.

?h Avoid close contact with others when they or you are sick. People are most contagious in the early stages of a cold or flu, or when they have heavy coughing, sneezing or diarrhea.

?h Keep your hands away from your face, eyes, nose and mouth.
Boost your immunity with sound nutrition and plenty of rest.
