You wouldn't believe a simple product like facial tissues is a must have item to help stop the spread influenza type viruses and germs in the workplace. It is vitally important to advise people to cover their nose and mouth with facial tissues whilst sneezing.
If a person coughs or sneezes and not cover their face while doing so, droplets can spread as far as one metre (3ft). If you are close, you may breathe some of the droplets in without realising it. This is why a box of facial tissues is such an important part of Germ prevention, so keep a box near you at all times.
