Prioritize Hand Hygiene

Hand hygiene is a crucial component of preventing the spread of infectious diseases, including the current COVID-19 pandemic. To make hand hygiene a priority, you can follow these steps:

Wash your hands frequently: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before and after eating, after using the restroom, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, and after touching frequently-touched surfaces like doorknobs, handles, or public transportation.

Use hand sanitizer: If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content to kill germs on your hands. Be sure to rub the sanitizer over all surfaces of your hands until dry.

Avoid touching your face: Your hands come into contact with a lot of surfaces throughout the day, so it's important to avoid touching your face, mouth, nose, and eyes with unwashed hands.

Encourage others: You can help make hand hygiene a priority by encouraging others to wash their hands regularly and offering hand sanitizer when available.

Stay informed: Stay up-to-date on the latest guidelines from health organizations like the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) on how to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

Remember that hand hygiene is a simple yet effective way to protect yourself and others from illness. By making it a priority in your daily routine, you can help prevent the spread of infectious diseases and keep yourself and your community healthy.
