Effective Hand Washing advice

Published: Friday, 20 March 2020

Working in partnership with Learning Nexus, we are offering all local residents free access to an Effective Hand Washing online course.

Effective hand washing is one of the key methods to keeping both yourself and your family protected against coronavirus.

This course takes you through the key stages of hand washing to help stop the virus spreading.

Coronavirus survives on our hands for roughly 10 minutes, and can enter the body if we touch our faces during this time.

It is reported that we touch our faces an average of 16 times per hour, meaning it is imperative to have clean hands to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
