Maybe this is dialectical, but I would also say "catch cold" in addition to "catch a cold". Is that just me though?
yes, that's a common variant. Catch cold = catch a cold
we always say catch the cold
Good luck with that in the winter here with the snow.
You could just stay outside. Colds spread in winter becuse everyone coops themselves up.
There seems to be so many ways to catch a cold but apparently “I am trying not to get sick” is not accepted.
