Germophobic about the subway? Relax, it’s not as bad as you thought.

The New York Times recently posted this article about a study done in NYC’s subway system. The goal was to discover if subway air was any more germ-filled than in any other place. The answer seems to be no!

So, while you still need to watch out for anyone coughlng or sneezing on public transportation, and you still should _not_ touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth) while you’re out anywhere, you don’t have to worry that the subway is any grosser than any other public space.
