Flu viruses enter your body via your nose, eyes, or mouth—and contaminated hands are the most likely way they’ll get there. Lather up before eating or handling food, and wash more frequently when you hear hacking or blowing on the other side of the cubicle. When using soap and water, it’s the friction that gets rid of germs, so the more rubbing, the better. Lather up for at least 20 seconds (about the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice) or keep an alcohol-based gel, like Purell, on hand.
