How to avoid Viruses in the House-hold and Workplace?

I was looking for a way to avoid them instead of killing them coz I can't take a chance...since my body has really low odds of beating them. I know the popular way of not having unprotected sex....but what else do they normally spread from?(is spreading lysol everywhere the only way?)

This is off-the-cuff opinion, not carefully researched. However, these are ways to decrease risks.

Wash your hands with hot water and soap periodically. Avoid sick people, especially those sneezing. Pay attention to the safety of your drinking water; if you are in an area where there is significant risk from public water supplies, boil and treat tap water before drinking it. Eat freshly cooked food if you think there is some risk at a restaurant. Don't eat at buffets. Clean household toilets with bleach, letting the bleach soak in the bowls a few minutes before flushing it away. Clean surfaces with 10% bleach solution (dilute store-bought sodium hypochlorite solution 1:9 with water -- check that surfaces are color-fast in an inconspicuous place before using broadly).

The air that you breathe indoors may be dangerous to your health. How can we make indoor environments safer?

* Apply aerobiological engineering principles to buildings to control the bioaerosols in our indoor environments.
* Retrofit old buildings or specifically design new buildings to control airborne microbes.
* Develop regulatory standards for indoor environments.
* Become educated about sources and transmission routes of airborne pathogens.
