Be Hand Aware

  • Germs are spread primarily through secretions from the nose, mouth and eyes-- the "T" Zone.

    We should be aware of our hands as much as possible.

    Avoid touching eyes, noses and mouths.

    Always wash hands when they are dirty, after playing outdoors, playing with pets, using the toilet, after coughing or sneezing.

    Always wash hands before eating.

    Wash hands using the

    2. Water
