Keeping up with good hand hygiene on university and college campuses
To help ensure the safety and health of your students, faculty and staff, it’s important to practice and promote proper hand hygiene across university and college campuses. Especially during semesters when these higher education facilities experience high and varying traffic.
Every day, college and university students, faculty and staff touch multiple surfaces such as door handles, light switches and desktops. All should wash and fully dry their hands with paper hand towels frequently and properly throughout the day, but especially after nose-blowing, coughing or sneezing, before and after preparing food and eating and after using the toilet. They should also always wash their hands when they are visibly dirty or soiled, and when sharing equipment such as communal keyboards, computers and printers or handling trash.
