Studies have shown that people touch their eyes, nose and mouth about 25 times every hour. Coronavirus (COVID-19) is highly infectious and hand-washing is an important and effective method to aid in stopping the spread. The CDC provides us with these steps:
1. Wet your hands with clean water and apply soap.
2. Lather the back of hands, between fingers and under nails.
3. Scrub hands for at least 20 seconds or sing the “Happy Birthday Song” twice.
4. Rinse thoroughly.
5. Dry your hands with a clean paper towel, hand dryer or air dry.
