Reminder: The importance of washing your hands
Reminder: The importance of washing your hands

REMINDER! The most important thing you can do to protect yourself is to wash your hands. During the SARS epidemic (also caused by a coronavirus), hand-washing reduced the risk of transmission by 30 to 50%.

Here's how to effectively wash your hands:

  • Wet your hands with clean running water and lather them with soap (don't miss: backs of hands, between fingers, and under nails)
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds
  • Finally, rinse your hands well with clean, running water and then dry them with a clean towel or let them air dry

No Water? Use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
