As we enter into fall, the spread of germs that cause things like colds, flu, and other general illnesses increase.  To help protect yourself and others from these germs, now would be a great time to start following these tips.  Wash your hands often, especially after using the restroom and before eating, utilize tissues when needed, but discard promptly and wash hands or use hand sanitizer after doing so, cough or sneeze into your elbow vs your hands, and if you don't feel well and are running a fever (especially if over 100 degrees) it would be best to remain home to prevent spreading possible infection to others.  Handwashing or use of hand sanitizer is the best way to decrease your chance of coming into contact with germs that can make you sick.  Do what you can to protect yourself.
