I've been through so much these past few months that I'm terrified to get the flu. I work at a college and just had a student come in who I know is quarantined bc of the flu. He's not supposed to be in class for another week and a half. He came in all sweaty and shook my hand. I recognized the name asked him to communicate with me via email instead. I then proceeded to disinfect my desk and wash my hands.
Is there anything I can do to prevent the flu? Other than wash my hands, etc. I went to the CDC website and they don't recommend any vitamin C or anything like that.
I should also say my mother just got it as well. I don't live with her but I see her a few times a week. I think I saw her last week when she had it, but didn't know she was contagious yet. I feel fine, but just another point of contact that makes me nervous!
