A survey asked people how they greet people when they’re sick. 11% said they just shake hands even if they’re sick. That’s terrible.

Here are some other ways sickies greet one another:

1. Wave hello instead of shaking. 51%
2. Avoid shaking hands altogether. 45%
3. Fist bump. 16%
4. Air kiss. 10%.
5. High-fives 8%

By the way, high-fives are fifty percent less germy than handshakes.
