Host: And I more likely to catch a cold in a certain environment? Ronald Turner: You are most likely to catch a cold if you are around children of colds. So, by far, the most risk associated with the environment is contact with children who have colds. Beyond that, there is probably not a huge risk associated with any particular environment. You tend not to catch colds in a work environment simply, unless you are dealing with children, simply because in the adult work environment the types of interaction we have tends not to involve a lot of interpersonal contact and so, that doesn't seems to be a very important place to catch colds.
