Preventing Illness

  • What can I do to keep from getting sick?

    Your eyes, nose and mouth provide an easy way for germs to enter your body.

    • Don’t touch your eyes
    • Don’t touch your nose
    • Don’t touch your mouth
    • Keep your hands away from your face!

     

    Wash your Hands

    Use regular mild soap. Don’t use Anti-Bacterial soap - it dries the skin, which causes small cuts in the skin where germs can enter.

    It’s the Bubbles! The bubbles grab the germs and help carry them down the sink.

    Wash for as long as it takes to sing Happy Birthday to yourself. 20 seconds.

    Alcohol based gel hand sanitizer is good to use when you are not by a sink.
