It is important to practice good hygiene all year long, especially now that cold and flu season is underway and Covid-19 cases are increasing.  By taking simple steps, you can help yourself and loved ones stay healthy and to avoid spreading the germs that cause illness.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one of the most important and easiest ways to prevent illness is by washing your hands.  By keeping your hands clean, you can help prevent not only colds, flu, and Covid-19, but also food poisoning, diarrhea, and many other illnesses.

Keep in mind that all the precautionary steps you are taking to prevent Covid-19 (hand washing, hand sanitizing, wearing masks, not gathering in groups larger than six people, social distancing, staying home) are also helping prevent other illnesses. It really is no fun being sick. Take your health into your own hands and have a healthy season.
