How to Prevent the Spread of Viruses and Infections

Washing your hands is one of the most important ways to protect yourself, your family and employees from getting sick. Many viruses and infections, such as the Coronavirus (COVID-19), are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. Proper hand hygiene can prevent the spread of viruses and infections from one person to another and throughout your community, from your home and workplace to childcare centres and hospitals. Learn the recommended hand washing process to stay healthy.
