Can Germophobes Avoid Viruses? See What Happens During This Experiment

Cold Flu Season Germophobes

It’s the worst time of the year for germophobes: cold and flu season. Employees spend so many hours together during the week, often passing the same illnesses back and forth to each other for months.

And there’s only so much they can do on their end to prevent catching it: washing hands, disinfecting their desks, not shaking hands, using paper towels or tissues to open doors. But is it possible for someone to completely avoid getting sick during the cold and flu season?

Hit the play button on the video below to see what this experiment revealed when some germophobes tried to avoid getting sick from another person at a dinner party.

Cold and flu prevention at work is a two-way street. Not only do employees need to be mindful of where they’re touching, but it’s also important for companies to do their part by consistently disinfecting and having a professional cleaning plan in action.
