The CDC Says Wash Your Hands! #StayHome #StaySafe

Of course, we all know that handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick.
The CDC recommends that during the COVID-19 pandemic, you should also clean your hands after being in a public place and touched an item or surface that may be frequently touched by other people, such as door handles, tables, gas pumps, shopping carts, or electronic cashier registers/screens, etc.
Follow these five steps each time you wash your hands:
1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
    
Note: Use hand sanitizer when you can’t use soap and water.

Moisturize!

Since we all are washing our hands even more than normal, some of you might be experiencing dry and irritated skin like I am. It is important to moisturize and use lotion to combat the dryness.

Stay safe, stay home, wash your hands frequently, and use a moisturizer or lotion to prevent dry skin.

We will get through this together!
