Handwashing

Washing your hands is the most important and easiest action you can take to lower your chance of getting sick and spreading illness. Frequent and proper handwashing kills the germs that cause:

  • Gastrointestinal illnesses, such as norovirus and E. coli
  • Influenza
  • The common cold
  • Strep throat
  • Staph infection
  • Pink eye
  • — and many other diseases

Spread the Word ⁠— Not Germs!
