Key Times to Wash Your Hands

Home:Wash your hands before and after food prep, before eating, after using the bathroom, after touching garbage or diapers and after handling pet food. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects, like door handles and light switches.

Work:Always wash hands before eating and after using the bathroom. If there are communal snacks, use things like bakery tissue paper to avoid touching other people's food. Stay home if sick and encourage colleagues to do the same.

School: Remind children of proper hand washing techniques and timing (i.e. before lunch or snack time and after using the bathroom).

Traveling:Avoid unnecessary travel and try to stay at least 6 feet away from anyone who is sneezing, coughing or blowing their nose. At the airport, wash your hands after going through security and after getting off the plane.
