Since the germs can last on surfaces such as desks, door knobs, telephones, etc. Try not to touch your face at all after touching those places. I sometimes use my sleeve to open doors, so I don't have to touch the door knob. Also, carry some of that alcohol based hand sanitizer and use it after you shake someone's hand, touch something a sick person has touched. Read an article that says this stuff is about 99.9% effective in killing the influenza A virus.

Wash your hands frequently -- don't just dip your hands in the water -- sing happy birthday while you suds up to make sure you get your hands clean. Stay away from anyone who is coughing or sneezing. I usually scope out a place beforehand and if someone is sniffling, coughing -- I go way way across the room.
