How to Stop Germs When Your Whole Family Is Sick
The CDC says hand-washing is like a do-it-yourself vaccine. It’s one of the best ways to stop germs in their tracks so you (and others) don’t get sick. Wash often and well. Follow these five steps: Wet your hands with running water, lather with soap, then scrub, rinse, and dry. Spend at least 20 seconds at the sink for each session. That’s about as long as it takes to hum the “Happy Birthday” song all the way through two times.
