Today is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and the beginning of summer! You may be thinking about reserving trains, planes, and automobiles for vacation travel. Where ever you decide to travel, be prepared to have good hand hygiene and avoid germs that may slow you down and spoil the fun. Alcohol based hand sanitizers or gels or antibacterial wipes are useful alternatives if soap and water are not available:
How to Use Hand Sanitizer
- Use one or two squirts or pumps of the product.
- Rub hands together briskly, including the front and back, between fingers, around and under nails until hands are dry.
How to Use Hand Wipes
- Wipe all areas of hands until they are visibly clean.
- Use one or more wipes and dispose in an appropriate trash container.
- Let hands air dry.
