When Should You Wash Your Hands? Always! PDF Print E-mail


If you’re on the road, ocean or in the air this season, the worldwide Coronavirus scare must be on your mind. Along with all the other advice, always apply one of the most necessary rules. Wash!

Every time you touch anything dirty or potentially germy, wash your hands in soapy, hot water. Do this not only after you leave a public toilet. Just as important is before and after you eat and drink. When you grasp railings, stairways and passages, be sure you then wash your dirty hands. Any time your hands are visibly soiled, including after digging and hauling trash, clean up.

For the sake of others near you, if you have a cold or flu, wipe your face and hands with alcohol-based medicine after sneezing and blowing your nose. The same applies when dealing with young children and when you feed and pet animals.
