As someone who spent all weekend in bed with the flu.. I can tell you that you should do yourself a favor and avoid it at all cost.
One of the most obvious tips for staying healthy is washing your hands. But little good that will do you if you keep handling germs.
One item that is infested with germs is your cell phone. Think of all the nasty places you bring your phone and how many people touch it. Thats why it is important during cold and flu season to sanitize your phone as often as possible. Sanitary wipes that you use to wipe down your phone at work will work just as well on your cell and won't be moist enough saturate into your phone.
So try this simple tip and you can avoid wasting your weekend in bed... unless you want to ;)
