True        Most people are contagious for a day or so before their symptoms become apparent. The risk of spreading the disease tends to diminish along with the symptoms, though you can be contagious for more than a week. So it’s important to practice scrupulous hygiene during the whole cold and flu season, not just when you’re around someone who looks or sounds sick.
