CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. David Boyd believes preventing sickness can be simple.
Frequent hand washing is the simplest - and most effective - way to prevent illness, both at home and at school.
Use hand sanitizer. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Keep your hands away from your eyes and out of your mouth.
Don't share water bottles, food or other personal items. Avoid anyone who's sick.
