Have you ever experienced the misfortune of a sudden sneeze? This happened to me this week as I sat scrolling through social media and enjoying my morning coffee. Out of nowhere, I sneezed and I was sort of grossed out to see all of the little droplets on the glass screen of my phone (don’t worry, a little Lysol on a paper towel and I was right as rain).
I give this gross little anecdote to talk about the basics of what happens when we sneeze or cough, or sing or speak. These tiny little droplets, sometimes so small that we can’t even see them, spray everywhere and hang in the air.
