    D.C. Metro Asks Riders to Take H1N1 Precautions

    Published : Wednesday, 16 Sep 2009, 4:16 AM CDT

    Washington's Metro subway system is asking riders to take precautions to avoid spreading swine flu, ranging from covering your mouth when sneezing to carrying tissues, hand-sanitizing gels, and disinfecting wipes.

    Metro says it also is using an environmentally friendly disinfectant cleaner to wipe down surfaces throughout the system.

    Metro Chief Safety Officer Alexa Dupigny-Samuels says good personal hygiene can cut the risk of catching the disease.

    More than 1 million people ride Metro trains each day.
