I love to go to the movies and if you’re like me, you’ll be happy to know this important info to avoid germs in the theater.
Cover any cuts or abrasions. When viral experts swabbed movie seats, 25% contained staph bacteria, and some even tested positive for E. coli and MRSA. But you should be OK as long as you stop the bacteria from penetrating your skin by wearing a bandage on the injured area – and you wash your hands thoroughly before touching your face.
Also, when you’re deciding where to sit in the theater, remember this: The more people in a room, the greater the chance someone has a bug. Droplets in a cough or sneeze can travel 6 rows or more. So, try to sit where it’s least crowded.
