Good Hygiene Practice
Handwashing is one of the most important ways of controlling the spread of infections, especially those that cause diarrhoea and vomiting, and respiratory disease. The recommended method is the use of liquid soap, warm water and paper towels.
Always wash hands after using the toilet, before eating or handling food, and after handling animals. Cover all cuts and abrasions with waterproof dressings.
Coughing and sneezing easily spread infections. Children should be encouraged to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue. Wash hands after using or disposing of tissues.
Spitting should be discouraged.
