Transportation Enrollment for Second Semester (begins January 5, 2021)

Health Tip
Handwashing 101

Keeping hands clean is especially important to keep the virus from spreading during the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are differences between washing hands with soap and water and using hand sanitizer. Soap and water work to remove all types of germs from hands, while sanitizer acts by killing certain germs on the skin. Although alcohol-based hand sanitizers can quickly reduce the number of germs in many situations, they should be used in the right situations. Soap and water are more effective than hand sanitizers at removing certain types of germs as well as chemicals.

Teach kids the five easy steps for handwashing:
  • Wet your hands with clean running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap and apply soap.
  • Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song twice.
  • Rinse your hands under clean, running water.
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
