How to wash your hands

Washing your hands and encouraging everyone around you to do the same can help stop the spread of germs and keep you healthy.

  • Before you touch your eyes, nose or mouth

  • Before you eat or touch food

  • After sneezing or coughing

  • After going to the bathroom

  • After petting or playing with an animal
