A common cold or rhinovirus is the most common illness known and are the main reason that children miss school and adults miss work. *(1)
Colds can spread from infected people to others through the air and close personal contact. Transmission of the virus occurs when an infected person touches or exchanges body fluids with someone who has a cold, or touch a surface, like a doorknob, that has the virus on it, then touch your eyes, mouth, or nose.
To help reduce your risk of getting a cold the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the following: *(2)
* Wash your hands often with soap and water.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
* Stay away from people who are sick.
The CDC also recommends cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting your home everyday, especially when someone in your home is sick. *(3)
