shake. what do do you? >> it's a subject recently covered by reader's digest and matt's diary. what's the best way to handle the situations? we go to natalie, an nbc news medical contributor. we have two perspectives. the health perspective and the should you, shouldn't you. the sick coworker. what do you do when you have a coworker who is sneezing and coughing? >> you want to be the good samaritan. you have cough drops and cough medicine nearby and hand sanitizer to share with those who are sick. you are helping to prevent the spread of germs. >> stay home? >> you are sending a message as you say you shouldn't be here. >> you are. if you are the boss definitely say go home. if you are saying i want you here go home. you are doing us a favor. >> i immediately start to be the detective and i will walk over
8:43 am
and say how long have huh that cough? do you have a fever or a sore throat? i find myself taking a medical history. am i more concerned about them or their ability to spread the disease to everybody else. it's more the latter. i want to gauge their level of infectivity. >> you are on a plane and the person next to you as i had runny nose. do you say something about it? do you turn and do what i do and put your back to that person? medically speaking, how dangerous is that? >> you are not sharing utensils or anything other than the arm rest. it's ft because my first instinct is to turn away. the way that person will infect you is if they cough and it gets into your mouth. you keep your hand sanitizer there and use it over and over and over again so anything they touch or sneeze on you don't touch and bring it to your face.
8:44 am
>> woo he a funny thing happen to us at the globes. somebody said they are sick and want to shake your hand. >> a very well-known actress gave me a hug and kiss and held my hand and -- >> she said i had the worst flu and have been throwing up and we did the entry. i said thank you so much and good luck. she said i shouldn't shake your hand i'm sick. she and matt had already. >> as a person who is healthy, you never want to refuse but you get yourself to the wash room to scrub up so you don't spread it to others. if you are sick i don't feel well today and i don't top the get you sick. >> protect yourself and do it in a way that has an element of class. >> don't give them the cold shourder because they have a cold. >> what about the double dipping. >> it's super bowl weekend. >> with friends and family i

stay healthy. tricks of the trade after this. in a race, it's about getting to the finish line. in life, it's how you get there that matters most. like when i found out i had a blood clot in my leg. my doctor said that it could travel to my lungs and become an even bigger problem. so he talked to me about xarelto®. >>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on
9:15 am
xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today. tonight, every dish came out of the cupboard. literally. can this mess be conquered by a little bit of dawn ultra? yes. one bottle has the grease cleaning power of two bottles of this bargain brand. dawn, it's amazing what a drop can do.
