1 Minute With Dr. J
Dr. J here,
I hope you had a good 4th of July weekend! Today we are going to talk about ways to help keep germs away or spreading germs. Washing hands and cleaning often can help a lot. Here are some thoughts about what you and your family can do:
Clean hands often
using soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Parents and caretakers play an important role in teaching children to wash their hands. Explain that hand washing can keep them healthy and stop the virus from spreading to others. Be a good role model—if you wash your hands often, people around you are likely to do the same.
Clean high-touch surfaces daily
in household common areas (like tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, and sinks).
Just some simple tips to help keep yourself and others healthy.
Until next time,
Dr. Jordan L. Nordquist
