When you decide to dine out, how comfortable are you that your waiter or food handler is concerned about passing germs to you along with your food?
Food workers are supposed to wash their hands and follow certain safety instructions when handling food, but these practices are mostly ignored. While most employees will wash their hands after going to the bathroom, these same people will cough or sneeze into their hands and then transfer their germs directly to your food. Even if they are wearing gloves while handling food, there is always the chance that they will wipe their nose and transfer the germs onto their gloves and eventually onto your plate.
We are in the middle of flu season and with the outbreak of the Corona Virus the chances of becoming sick is very high. Especially when you have to be around large number of people either at work or high volume areas. If you are over 60, have a smaller child or have a medical condition your immune system is already compromised and you are more susceptible to getting sick. Hopefully, you had a flu shot in the Fall so your chances of having a bad case, even if you catch the flu might be somewhat lesser.

Unfortunately, the displays on these devices are glare magnets and make it hard to see the display from reflective glare.
Electronic displays have invaded the kitchen. You can touch your refrigerator door and see what’s inside or make notes for your next shopping trip. Your oven may now have an electronic display instead of knobs or buttons. While you are cooking you might be looking at your laptop or tablet to read the recipe you downloaded from Pinterest.
