Hand washing beyond 2 minutes Editor's Notes #309A

WHO hand washing instructions
This is a short special issue of Editor’s Notes sharing something that helped me. I hope it helps you, too.

After I sent off the last issue, I watched a CBC report on a doctor teaching preschoolers how to properly wash their hands according to World Health Organization (WHO) standards.

I knew about the two-minute rule, but it turns out that just randomly sloshing and rubbing for two minutes isn’t going to do the trick. I’m grateful for a set of steps I can take every time I wash up.

Here’s a link to the simple routine. I hope this helps you to stay safe and keep those around you safe. Wash any time you may have touched something contaminated.

Stay safe, and keep writing.

PS. Please share this important information.
