We WASH you a merry Christmas and a healthy new year! Download our festive handwashing posters to make sure you’re lathering up for the right amount of time.
How important is washing your hands?
Viruses, like COVID-19 and the flu, spread when they’re able to enter the mucous membranes in your eyes, mouth, or nose. The main way this occurs is through contact transmission, the transfer of infected droplets from one person to another.
To prevent infection — and avoid becoming as red-nosed as Rudolph — experts recommend practicing social distancing, washing your hands frequently, and not touching your face.
How do you wash your hands the right way?
Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds every time you wash. Download and print these posters to place near sinks as friendly reminders to practice proper hand hygiene this holiday season.
If you get sick this winter, schedule a virtual visit with your Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Group primary care physician for a quick symptom evaluation. They can provide your next steps toward testing, treatment, and recovery.
