This is hardly a surprise, but is nonetheless still disturbing.
According to CNN.com, a recent study measured the amount of germs left behind after guests with "lab-confirmed rhinovirus colds" checked out of hotel rooms.
Doctors swooped in after the guests departed and found the nasty virus alive and well on hotel pens, TV remotes, light switches, faucets, telephones, coffee makers, alarm clocks and shower curtains.
Totally nasty! Eventhough the maid changes your sheets your room is still contaminated!

maybe hotels should start a policy where after a guest has checked out of a room, to sterylize it - i/e clean off the remotes, handles, etc. with a disinfectant.
It might be time-consuming, but well worth while, I think. » invisible
