National Hygiene Week

Today marks the start of National Hygiene Week.

This year the importance of hand hygiene has never been more prominent. As we as a community continue to stand together to keep our Manx bubble safe, National Hygiene week offers us the opportunity to talk about the importance of hand-washing and how simply singing “Happy Birthday” twice really can make a difference to support a clean and safe community.



Our top hand-washing tips
  1. Wet your hands with clean, running warm water and apply soap.
  2. Rub your hands together to form soap suds
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds, making sure to scrub the palm, back, fingers, thumbs, wrists and nail beds
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water
  5. Remember to spread the message to friends, family and co-workers to protect our community from the spread of germs
