Everything about gloves.

Wash your hands

H1N1 virus up-date: Unless you’re employed in the healthcare or food industries you most likely don’t have access to disposable gloves, one of the best defense items to prevent direct contact to flu viruses.

However, you have likely seen the copious news reports promoting proper hand hygiene. To help, I’m posting a helpful educational video produced by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) regarding proper hand hygiene. You can link to the video by clicking on the title of this post.

For those of you who need help regarding disposable gloves for flu prevention feel free to contact me.

Do you think that wearing cotton gloves when traveling can protect against flu viruses. I ask this because I have heard that viruses do not live as long on non-animate surfaces.

No, cotton gloves will not protect you against any virus. I suggest using disposable PE gloves often referred to as cafeteria gloves for travel. They are inexpensive, easy to carry, and easy to don and doft.
