Hand Hygiene

Hand Hygiene

We have heard it before, we will hear it again. Hand hygiene is imperative to a healthy life for all of us. 

Keep your hands clean to help avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. The best option is to wash all parts of your hands, fingers, and wrists with soap and warm, clean running water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer. 

When to Wash your Hands

  • Before preparing or eating food
  • After using the bathroom
  • After changing a diaper or cleaning up a child who has used the bathroom
  • Before and after tending to someone who is sick
  • After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • After handling an animal or cleaning up animal waste/litter boxes
  • After handling garbage
  • Before and after treating a cut or wound
