Hand washing seems very helpful.

 We wash hands a lot and teach them to cough in their arm and I try to clean extra when people are sick.

Hand washing and trying to get them to cover their mouths with their arms when they cough or sneeze.  It doesn't work, though, if one gets it the other one gets it too lol

I don't worry about it.  I'd have to be on the boys constantly to not share & that just isn't going to happen.

I do try to clean up anything that needs cleaning quickly, and follow general good hygiene, but otherwise I just let things take their course. We don't get sick often so I haven't had to worry about it much either.

 Hand washing is best! Sanitizer works too.
