The primary benefit of the appropriate use of hand washing with soap and water or hand sanitizer can help to prevent the spread of germs and virus that can lead to illness. It is important to teach children proper hand washing practices or how to use hand sanitizer when they return to school and are at an increased risk for catching contagious bacterial or viral illnesses.

6 Hand Washing & Sanitizing Tips From The CDC (NEW COVID-19 Update)

  1. Always wash your hands when preparing food, using the toilet, eating, handling medications, blowing your nose or sneezing, inserting or removing contact lenses, treating a wound, taking care of someone who is ill, handling garbage or contaminated waste, or handling animals.
  2. When washing your hands, rinse with warm water and use soap. Lather hands with soap and rub together for at least 20 seconds while scrubbing all surfaces including the nails, wrists, etc. Rinse hands well and dry with a
    paper towel. If possible, use a paper towel to turn the faucet off so not to re-contaminate your hands.
  3. When using hand sanitizer, apply sanitizer until hands are thoroughly wet and rub hands together until hands are dry. Do not dry hands with a towel or any other object.
  4. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers
    when soap and water are not available and hands are not visibly dirty. Also, CDC recommends that school-aged children may use alcohol-based hand rubs as an alternative to hand washing throughout the day.
  5. Children 6 years old and younger should only use hand sanitizers in the direct supervision of an adult. Hand
    sanitizers should be kept out of reach by children and are not recommended for use on infants.
  6. Hand sanitizers are for external use only and should only be used on and around the hands. Do not inhale or
    ingest sanitizers. Avoid contact with broken skin and eyes.
