Health Tip: When to Wash Your Hands

Hand washing helps prevent the spread of germs, and is particularly important at certain times.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mentions these examples:

  • Before, during and after preparing food, and before you eat.
  • Before and after you care for a person who is sick or has an open wound.
  • After you use the toilet, help a child with the toilet or change a diaper.
  • After you sneeze, cough or blow your nose.
  • After touching or feeding an animal, or cleaning up animal waste.
  • After handling trash.
