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.

When you should wash your hands

  • 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
