Just some friendly tips related to the coronavirus (click image to enlarge):

The tips:
1. Put on a mask if you're using public transportation or in public areas.
2. Wash your hands for more than 30 seconds.
3. Coughing etiquette: cough into your sleeve.


  1. Only one of those will actually help you avoid catching the novel coronavirus (or any other virus, for that matter): washing your hands. Wearing a mask and coughing into your sleeve are for other people's sake. Not that you shouldn't be careful how you cough normally, but unless you are sick or believe you are infected, you don't need to wear a mask.

    Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine.

  2. That's the gospel we used to preach when I worked for APIC twenty years ago: wash your hands.
