Did you wash your hands?
Washing your hands after using the bathroom — not to mention after touching any number of public surfaces, from doorknobs to subway handrails to oh-so-disgusting toilet flush levers — is a basic rule of hygiene. Yet we don't always do it properly, if at all, which is particularly ill-advised behavior during flu season, when germy hands are common gateways to infection.
