"Any time someone with influenza coughs, sneezes, or even talks loudly, they actually expel the virus in their breath,” said Diana Bowden, Infection Control Preventionist with Regional Hospital. “That's why social distancing is important, because you need to keep your distance so you don't inhale the droplets that are coming out in their breath."
Social distancing -- now there's a concept I can get behind. Come to think of it, I've been using it most of my life. In addition to avoiding flu droplets, it's also amazingly effective at preventing stupid conversations and other unwanted interactivity.
