With the COVID 19 pandemic in full gear, and since handwashing is the single most effective way to stop the spread of communicable disease, lets review when should we wash your hands?
-often!..and at the minimum…
-after blowing your nose (there are tons of germs in your nose – that is the point – the nose hairs are filters)
-when you get home before touching anything else
-when you enter a building, office, or a friend’s house (so that you are not bringing IN bugs)
-when you leave a building (so that you are not bringing bugs to a dif location)
-before cooking, touching food, eating, or putting anything in your mouth
-before & after going to the washroom or changing diapers
-when your hands are dirty
NEVER EVER touch your face, eyes, ears, nose, or mouth without washing your hands.
STOP now, any habit of picking your teeth, playing with your lips, rubbing your eyes, sticking your finger in your ears and picking your nose! This has never been hygienic, not during a pandemic, not EVER!
And .. leave the phone at home!!! It kinda defeats the whole purpose when you wash your hands diligently, but constantly touch your phone. Instead .. just talk to a real person ?
