CoughEtiquette

This year’s approach is to take it to the public. We will continue supporting our education program with previous participants who wish to continue. However, we are shifting our strategy to move into public spaces and reach people of all ages to expand the awareness of the importance of proper coughing and sneezing etiquette. Dense, highly traveled areas where public are required to be for purposes such as transportation, judicial hearings, and attendance at public zoos and other areas, are the focus of this year’s campaign to educate and encourage proper sneezing and coughing etiquette. In anticipation of rapidly increasing public awareness of the CoughSpot program, we are building implicit flexibility to add latecomers who wish to join our movement. Highlights of this year’s program are the inclusion of courthouses (and their libraries), continuation of participation at the largest pediatric hospital, as well as the children’s museum, and the state airport. These should increase awareness significantly. We are anticipating exponential growth of the program.
