Hands-on perspective

February 18, 2020


>>>THOUSANDS OF INDIANA STUDENTS DIDN’T HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL TODAY BECAUSE IT’S PRESIDENTS’ DAY. THE CHILDREN’S MUSEUM WAS OFFERING FREE ADMISSION. THOUSANDS OF KIDS DESCENDED.>>WE’RE IN THE HEIGHT OF COLD AND FLU SEASON. WE SENT OUR MARY MILZ THERE TO SEE WHAT THEY’RE DOING TO MAKE SURE A TRIP TO THE MUSEUM DOESN’T RESULT IN A TRIP TO THE DOCTOR.>>READY TO HELP OUT?>>Reporter: THIS IS 8-YEAR-OLD SOPHIA. SHE IS SEAN ASH’S DOCTOR.>>YOU COMFORTABLE? THAT OKAY?>>Reporter: SHE PUT ON A GOPRO TODAY TO DEMONSTRATE HOW EASY IT IS TO CATCH SOMETHING DURING FLU SEASON. ON PRESIDENTS’ DAY, IT WAS FREE, AND SWARMING WITH PEOPLE. SHE LOVES THE MUSEUM. YOU GET TO TOUCH A LOT OF STUFF, WHICH IS GREAT, UNLESS SOMEONE WITH A COLD OR VIRUS TOUCHED IT BEFORE YOU. WITH THIS HANDS-FIRST VIEW, WE PLANNED TO KEEP TRACK OF EVERYTHING SOPHIA TOUCHED. BUT THERE WAS NO WAY TO KEEP UP. SHE WANTED TO TOUCH EVERYTHING, AND WHO WOULDN’T? THIS IS JUST A REMINDER THAT, ESPECIALLY DURING COLD AND FLU SEASON, TO BE MINDFUL OF WHAT YOU’RE TOUCHING AND TAKE PRECAUTIONS. HERE OR AT HOME OR THE GYM, GERMS CAN LIVE ON SURFACES FOR UP TO 48 HOURS.>>WE HAVE FREE CLEANSING AND DISINFECTIONS THROUGH THE DAY AND ALSO OVERNIGHT.>>Reporter: THEY ALSO WASH ALL THE COSTUMES OVERNIGHT, AND HAVE WIPES AND SANITIZER ALL OVER THE PLACE. AND SOPHIA KNOWS TO CLEAN HER HANDS.>>IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT, BECAUSE WHEN YOU GET SICK, YOU DON’T WANT TO SPREAD GERMS TO OTHER PEOPLE, TO MAKE SURE YOU GET SICK AND GET BETTER, BUT NOBODY ELSE.>>SHE IS ADORABLE.>>DAD’S THE WEATHER GUY. MOM’S A DOCTOR. SHE KNOWS WHAT TO DO.>>SHE’S GOT A FUTURE IN BROADCASTING.>>THERE AT THE MUSEUM, YOU’RE GOING UP AND DOWN THE STAIRS, HOLDING THE RAILS.>>KUDOS TO THEM FOR ALL THEY DO.>>AND THEY WERE GREAT SPORTS, AND THEY TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY DO. IT DOES MAKE YOU PARANOID WHEN YOU THINK JUST ABOUT AT THE STATION, EVERYTHING YOU PICK UP, YOU TOUCH.>>THANKS SO MUCH. GREAT STORY.>>THANK YOU SOPHIA, TOO!>>SHE DID A GREAT JOB. DON’T FORGET, THIS CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE. THE TOP FIVE PLACES KIDS PICK UP AND SPREAD GERMS MIGHT SURPRISE YOU. A TYPICAL CAR SEAT CAN HARBOR MORE GERMS THAN A TOILET SEAT. EWWW! THAT’S DISGUSTING! NO. 4, YOUR CELL PHONE OR TABLET. MAKE SURE YOU KEEP THAT CLEAN.>>NO. 3, SPORTS EQUIPMENT AND MAT. I WAS AT THE GYM THE OTHER DAY, AFTER EVERYONE IS FINISHED, THEY WIPE IT DOWN WITH A LITTLE DISINFECTANT.
