Our hands are in constant contact with surfaces throughout the day. The germs on these surfaces are transferred to our bodies when we use our hands to touch our face, nose and mouth. We may transfer germs to other when we touch them as well. It is important to wash our hands properly to keep them clean at all times. Watch the video to find out how to wash your hands the right way!
When you are sick and you cough and sneeze, tiny droplets of saliva and mucus carrying airborne viruses are expelled into the air. These viruses can spared to those around you and make them sick too. Wear a mask or cover your mouth when coughing (and nose when sneezing). When wearing the mask, the mask should cover your mouth, nose and chin, with the coloured side facing outwards. The thin metal wire along the upper edge of the mask should be pressed gently against your nose bridge.
