Meeting sick people?: Wearing a mask and washing one's hands frequently are two things that help stop the spread of respiratory infections such as the flu. Also, ask sick people to stay home. Stay away from crowded places. Avoid shaking hands, and try not to touch too many objects. One should be sure to get the annual flu shot.
