CDC Hand Sanitizer Guidelines
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have told us that clean hands are a key part of our defense against coronavirus and COVID-19. We all should wash our hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. This is especially important after coughing, sneezing, or blowing our noses, as well as before eating, and after using the restroom. By now, we all pay attention to when we touch our faces, because viruses and germs can infect us if active microbes get into our eyes, nose, and mouth.
