The importance of Hand Hygiene


Good hand washing is your first line of defense against the spread of many illnesses – and not just the common cold. More serious illnesses such as meningitis, bronchiolitis, influenza, hepatitis A, and most types of infectious diarrhea can be stopped with the simple act of washing your hands. Don’t underestimate the power of hand washing! The few seconds you spend at the sink with could very well save you trips to the doctor’s office.
