Oh no. A bunch of your friends are sick.

Obviously they should stay in tonight and get some rest.

They show up to the party like nothing’s the matter.

Like they’re not about to GET YOU ALL SICK WITH THEIR NASTY GERMS.



It’s gonna be OK. We’ll get through this. Here are some tips and tricks for not letting your sick friends get you sick.

Don’t let it happen.

2. Avoid all handshakes…

5. Challenge everyone to a hand-washing competition. Demand a rematch every 15 minutes.

6. If you have enough time, build a whole outfit around a fashionable respirator mask.
