Wash Your Hands

  • Make sure there's handwashing soap and paper towels or a clean cloth at every sink in your home.

  • Wash your hands with hot, soapy water (for at least 20 seconds) before and after handling food and after using the bathroom, changing diapers or handling pets. 

  • Thoroughly scrub hands, wrists, fingernails, and in between fingers. Rinse and dry hands with paper towels or a clean cloth.
