Handwashing tips to stop the spread of COVID-19

COVID-19 is a reminder to everyone about the importance of hand hygiene. Of course, we shouldn’t need reminding, but washing our hands can prevent the spread of disease. You should practice proper handwashing before, during, and after food prep, after using the toilet, after touching garbage and public surfaces such as doorknobs, and of course, after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.

These simple tips can stop the spread

• Always use soap
• Lather your hands properly
• Scrub your hands and between the fingers for 20 seconds (sing happy birthday)
• Rinse your hands with clean water
• Dry your hands with clean paper towel or air dry
