Hand Washing 
continues to be the best defense against colds and the flu as well as most contagious illnesses. 

Please promote proper hand-washing techniques in your family, especially before meals and after using the bathroom. 

Handwashing is easy to do and it's one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of many types of infection and illness in all settings—from your home and workplace to child care facilities and hospitals. Clean hands can stop germs from spreading from one person to another and throughout an entire community.
