As the festive season approaches, it is helpful to remember good practices for infection prevention at home. Sharing utensils and glasses helps to transmit microorganisms and fosters the spread of disease, while sharing tasty plates of dessert among family and friends with different utensils still results in contamination – unless everyone only has one bite! Using separate utensils and not sharing glasses or plates (or sippy cups with young children) helps prevent the transmission of microorganisms, oral disease and other infections. Have a happy and healthy festive season.
