My roommate is sick. Lots of coughing and sniffling. We're in college, so we're in a pretty enclosed space (he has his side of the room, and I have mine).
I historically always catch whatever my roommate is sharing, but this time I'd like to avoid the bug if possible. Is there anything I can do to improve my chances of staying cold-free (using lysol/oust liberally, taking vitamin c pills, etc.)?
