Flu season can be difficult to navigate in the workplace. Flu prevention can sometimes feel impossible. Even if you have a flu shot, you are still exposed to millions of bacteria on almost every surface you touch at your office. In a University of Arizona Study, researchers found that there are almost 400 times more bacteria on desktop keyboards than there are on toilet seats. Many people don’t realize how quickly bacteria infect nearly every surface of an office. If one person is infected with a flu virus or other pathogen, within four hours 40 percent of the workplace will be contaminated.
