Sneez app by Wake Forest Baptist Health helps track illnesses in your area

Presents and holiday cheer are not the only things people are spreading this time of year, a lot of germs are too. Washing your hands and wiping off surfaces are good ways to try and stay healthy, and now your phone might help you too.
