Tips and Facts for Safe Handwashing during COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Outbreak
  • Don't shake people's hands
  • Keep your distance: no hugs or kisses and remain 6 to 10 feet away from people you do not know
  • Avoid contaminated surfaces such as door handles in bathrooms and faucets - use a paper towel as barrier
  • Use your shoe instead of your hand to open a door or flush a toilet
  • Use your key to punch an elevator button
  • Clean surfaces and your cell phone with disinfectant (rubbing alcohol works)
  • Don't touch your face unless you have just washed your hands and are in the privacy of your own home
  • Use a humidifier, keeping humidity up will help the protective membranes in your nose from getting dry to better keep out infections

Caregiver Staff Training which includes an easy-to-use tracking portal and state-approved training courses has been created for senior home care agencies, by experienced senior home care professionals.
