Doctors advise everyone to practice good hygiene while they’re enjoying a super bowl party with friends. ECU physician, Dr. Keith Ramsey, encourages everyone to wash their hands and take a clean plate every time they get food.

Dr. Keith Ramsey said, “First of all if your sick don’t go stay home, watch it on your own TV, but if you go certainly if you see somebody else coughing or sneezing stay away from them.”
