Why is this course important to you?

You can take many actions to keep respiratory viruses from spreading from surfaces to people, including source control actions, proper hand hygiene, respiratory/cough etiquette, and good environmental cleaning and disinfection. Since respiratory droplets are the main way respiratory viruses spread, these actions are all important tools for keeping our patients, co-workers, and ourselves from breathing in each other’s respiratory droplets.
