National Handwashing Awareness Week

05 Dec National Handwashing Awareness Week

Washing hands can keep you healthy and prevent the spread of respiratory and diarrheal infections from one person to the next.
Today, we are sharing the American Medical Association’s and American Academy of Family Physicians’ four principles about hand awareness:
 
1. Wash your hands when they are dirty and before eating
2. Do not cough into hands
3. Do not sneeze into hands
4. Don’t put your fingers in your eyes, nose, or mouth.
 
Happy hands make for happy and healthy homes!
