COVID-19: Wash your hands frequently
Wash your hands frequently
No other measure is as effective in stopping the spread of COVID-19 than washing your hands with regular soap and water for 20 seconds. It can take that long for the soap to break down the virus particles on your hands. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer liberally if soap and water are unavailable. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. More handwashing tips.
