RSV can be prevented by:

* washing your hands - soap and water kills the virus
* keeping infected people away from others, especially babies and older people
* not sharing cups, glasses or cutlery with people who have colds
* covering your nose and mouth if you need to sneeze or cough
* throwing out tissues as soon as you’ve used them

No mention of WEAR A FUCKING MASK! And long sleeves. Convinced I got my last lurgy through my bare arms resting on a cafe table. (RSV, like colds can be caught through skin contact. At least COVID needs the respiratory route, although that includes eyes. I now have a long-sleeved teeshirt specifically for travel.)
