Hand Washing Instructions spots missed for social

Proper hand-washing techniques can help prevent the spread of disease. When washing your hands, wash for a full 20 seconds (about the amount of time it takes to sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star).  Pay special attention to your thumbs and outer fingers as those are areas that are frequently missed during hand-washing. Use soap and water to wash your hands regularly throughout the day and prior to eating. Avoid touching your face with hands that are not recently washed.

If you cough, cough into your sleeve or into a tissue and dispose of it. If you feel sick, stay home and avoid contact with others. With the recent coronavirus and as flu season continues, these steps will help prevent the spread of disease. Let's stay healthy Pflugerville.
