America’s schools are full of microbes! According to University of Arizona researchers, teachers have the “germiest” job in the country, with classrooms having seven times the amount of “germs” as a doctor’s office. The common cold, alone, accounts for nearly 22 million lost school days, according to information obtained on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website. In addition to hand washing, one of the best ways to resist the spread of microbes in schools is to decrease their levels on surfaces and inhibit their growth.
