How to Know if You Are Washing Your Hands Long Enough

by | March 11, 2020

In the midst of coronavirus spread, let’s talk about HAND HYGIENE:

Proper hand hygiene:

– wash your hands with soap and water
– don’t forget to wash the top of your hands
– wash between your fingers
– wash under your nails

Remember to scrub your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds. This is how long it takes to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (as in video) or Happy Birthday from beginning to end twice.

Both the soap and friction of scrubbing your hands, then rinsing with clean, running water, will help remove any dirt as well as disease-causing germs.

Dry your hands with a clean towel or air dry them. Microbes spread more easily from wet hands.

Remember, given that we use our phones all the time, don’t forget to KEEP YOUR PHONE CLEAN!
For more information on proper hand-washing and the evidence behind it, visit the CDC website.

To your health,
Dr. Bojana
