Health Tip of the Day

Washing for Prevention

Did you know that viruses and bacteria can live up to two hours (or more) on doorknobs, tables, desks and other surfaces that schoolchildren touch? One way to prevent the spread of germs among children is to encourage them to wash their hands with soap and warm water, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For those times when soap and water aren't feasible, have disposable hand wipes or gel sanitizers handy. The gel should be rubbed on the hands until it is dry.
