That shouldn’t be surprising when you think that at least 50 percent of Americans eat lunch and snack at their desks and one-third of workers go to work when they’re sick. When combined with the fact that we touch our faces 16 times every hour, it might be a miracle that we aren’t sick all of the time. The remedies to the spread of illness in the workplace are simple enough: wash your hands and your space, unchain yourself from your desk for lunch, and take a day off when you’re not feeling well.
