Handwashing with plain (not antibacterial) soap and water is one of the most important ways that we can prevent the spread of germs. Children are not the only ones who spread germs. Teachers and parents also spread germs on their hands.
Children and staff staying home they ill keep germs at home, too.
Covering our coughs and sneezing into our sleeves lowers the number of germs that we send out into the environment. Germs get caught in our clothing instead, where they don’t live very long!
