Global Handwashing Day

Today is Global Handwashing Day. We all know that hand washing can reduce the spread of infection, including COVID-19 and seasonal flu – but are we always washing our hands correctly?

 
Remember to:
  •  Wet hands thoroughly and lather with soap
  • Rub your hands together for at least 20 seconds as you wash them
  • Pay attention to the backs of hands, wrists, between fingers and under fingernails
  • Rinse your hands well under running water
  • Dry hands with a single use paper towel or a clean towel
 
Together we can all make a difference and stop the spread of infection!
