My wife said that a letter from the WTS was read at the KH yesterday.
She said that ones are fearful about the upcoming winter viruses in the U.S. Therefore the WTS recommended that ones cough and sneeze into ones clothing, elbow, but not into ones hands. If one is sick, then do not come to the KH. The WTS recommended washing ones hands. Also the BOE received a separate letter.
She told me that after the letter was read that this little girl started coughing without covering her mouth. The sister in the next row turned around and gave an angry look at the sister and the little girl behind her. Maybe the separate letter to the BOE says to DF anyone who does not cover their mouth properly when coughing or sneezing.
I am surprised that the WTS did not ban the shaking of hands at the KH.
