In schools, businesses and houses of worship, concerns about H1N1 flu have prompted warnings about close contact and confined spaces. How has fear of the flu changed the way you interact with people?
The flu hasn’t changed how i interact with others. I think the flu is just a boogie man. -Peter, St. Paul, MN
Rather than shake hands I give the Star Trek Vulcan “Live long and prosper” greeting. -Mark C.
Swine flu isn’t as big of a deal as everyone thinks it is. The regular flu kills more people every year. We need to stop being afraid of interaction with others and get on with our lives. -anonymous text message
I wash my hands more often than normal and carry around anti-bacterial hand wash. If someone is sick I don’t shake their hand. Working at Best Buy, I try to avoid touching people that are sick, and try to restrain from touching my face and eyes. -Adolph Hernick, Minneapolis, MN
I am not changing how I interact with people. I think everyone should get the h1n1 strain of the flu so that our population can build up immunity. -Chris
