Germiest Places During Flu Season

According to CityMD's 2017 survey, roughly three out of five Americans who have had the flu or flu-like symptoms (61%) admitted to being out and about the last time they felt sick, putting others at risk, likely without them knowing.

The online survey was conducted among over 1,800 Americans ages 18 and older who have had the flu or flu-like symptoms by Harris Poll on behalf of CityMD.

Where did they go? Unfortunately, all over town. When asked where they went the last time they felt sick, those who left the house said:

●    Drug store/Pharmacy – 69 percent
●    Grocery store – 43 percent
●    Workplace – 39 percent
●    Friend/Family member’s house – 20 percent
●    Restaurant/Deli – 16 percent
●    ATM – 14 percent
●    Public transportation – 10 percent
●    Gym – 8 percent
●    School/Daycare – 7 percent
