An important component of microbes in the built environment: clothing

Just a follow up on an earlier post about microbes on hospital workers clothing.  There is an interesting editorial responding to the news from the recent study that may be of interest:  Second Opinion: Bacteria hitchhikes on hospital apparel – Milford, MA – The Milford Daily News.

Clearly, we need to think about clothing as a major means to move microbes around in the built environment.
