What precautions do you take when you have a cough but must prepare meals?

I turn my head and cough into my arm, but I don't like to feel that I might spread the cough to my family.

I do the same as you, wash my hands often, if it's really bad, my dh cooks. He's a better cook than me anyway =)

That's what I do too, and wash my hands a lot.  Or I order out.

Ordering out sounds good. :)

I do the same. Or I'll stop turn around and then couch into my arm that way it's in no way directed towards the food.

I do the same as you and honestly, my skids are all teenagers and my DH is 40-something. If they are going to insist on the coughing woman cooking them dinner, they're going to have to deal with the fact that my cough germs may get into their food. If they don't want that, they are more than welcome to do the cooking.

Boy, I sure sound crabby don't I?!
