Hand Hygiene: We Make Clean Hands Easier

Did you know that the flu virus can survive on hands for up to 5 minutes? That's why practicing proper hand washing procedures is a must every day and especially during the cold and flu season. The CDC recommends these steps:

  • Wet hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap and apply soap
  • Rub hands together to lather the soap. Clean the backs of hands, between fingers and under nails
  • Scrub for at least 20 seconds
  • Rinse well under clean, running water
  • Dry with a clean towel or air dry
  • Before using hand sanitizer, remove any dirt from hands with soap and water. Apply product to palm and rub hands together until it disappears (15-20 seconds)
