How to best avoid contracting the JC Virus?

As I’m weeks away from starting Tysabril, I’m lucky to know that I’m currently clear of the JC virus. However, I also know you can pick the virus up. Any advice on how best to avoid picking it up?

Look forward to hearing what you all know!

@dannyj, yes, there is a danger of contracting PML whilst on Tysabri. But, there’s also the possibility of Kidney damage on other DMDs.
So, it is a known risk and you will be closely monitored to avoid it causing you a problem.
Hope this helps.
