Handwashing continues to be an important way to prevent the spread of coronavirus and other respiratory illnesses.
The steps for effective handwashing include:
Wet your hands with warm or cold water, turn water off, and apply soap to your hands.
Lather the soap by rubbing your hands together to include the front and back of hands and fingers.
Scrub hands and fingers for at least 20 seconds.
