Someone I met today shook my hand. As soon as it was over I Purrell my hands with my pocket size container. Can I just tell people I am not shaking hands? How can he not noticed this?

It’s not that deep. Just say you’d rather not shake hands if that’s your preference

Seems a little extreme IMO but if you’re really not comfortable just say due to the virus, you’re playing it safe and would prefer to not shake hands.

You can tell him you are French 😘

I have never liked shaking hands (germaphobe even before corona) - smile and nod or say you’re sick!

I agree w you. I don’t touch things as is and use paper to touch bathrooms, door handles and my feet to flush toilets. More so now. I know I was my hands but what about others.

Keep your hands in your pocket.
