National Handwashing Awareness Week is Dec. 6–12 and the observance is a good reminder about how important it is to wash your hands.
Washing your hands is one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect yourself, and prevent the spread of colds, the flu and COVID-19. As you touch people, surfaces and objects throughout the day, you accumulate germs on your hands. You can infect yourself with these germs by touching your eyes, nose or mouth, or spread them to others. Although it's impossible to keep your hands germ-free, washing your hands frequently can help limit the transfer of bacteria, viruses and other microbes.
It seems simple enough, but you'd be surprised to find out many people are washing their hands all wrong. Watch this video and see how your hand-washing technique compares.
