"In terms of spreading germs, shaking hands is significantly worse than sniffing butts.”
"If the general public could be encouraged to fist-bump, there is genuine potential to reduce the spread of infectious diseases.”
"Knowing the ramifications of cold and flu, bumping fists instead of shaking hands is a bit of a no-brainer this day in age."
"Utilizing effective hand hygiene practices along with getting your flu shot, is one of the best ways to stay healthy this flu season."
It is with great pleasure that I announce this is now officially a handshake-safe space. This cold, flu & Covid season, all handshaking should cease immediately.
The World Health Organization said, wearing masks, while maintaining 6 feet from other people is best, and fist bumping spreads 90% less germs than a handshake, this simple action could potentially save lives.
So don’t feel weird next time you greet someone with a fist bump. During the cold and flu season, it’s what we do.
