As cold and flu season gears up, keeping hands clean helps to prevent illness at home, at school, and at work. The CDC reminds us that hand washing is a simple thing and it's the best way to prevent infection and illness.
If clean water and soap are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Alcohol-based hand rubs significantly reduce the number of germs on skin and are fast-acting.
By practicing good hand washing and sanitizing, we can help stop the spread of germs.
