Wash your hands - clean hands saves lives!
Washing your hands is one of the best ways to ensure that you keep yourself and your family safe, slow down the spread of the virus and flatten the curve. You should wash your hands often, after any activity. CDC has a great resource on when and how to wash your hands, and the five steps for clean hands -
Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
