With school back in session, or about to begin, the spread of germs is going to happen. With a little diligence, you can keep your children and family healthier. Germs and viruses are rampant in classrooms, and most kids (and their families) get sick several times throughout the school year. Even without school-age children, you need to be prepared as you come across the kids in your neighborhood, in shopping stores, and around restaurants. You might not have direct contact but the germs will still abound around you.
