Stay Healthy

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other leading health organizations, proper hand hygiene is one of the most important preventative measures you can take to reduce your risk of illness and infection.
  • Scientific outcome studies provide evidence that hand hygiene, including the use of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer like PURELL, reduces our risk of getting sick.
  • A recent study conducted by the makers of PURELL demonstrated that the use of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer can significantly reduce the transfer of a virus to the hands, and prevent germ transfer via commonly touched surfaces in the household.

My grandson and I joined in with this photo! The small, easy to carry bottles of PURELL has come in quite handy since he broke his arm.  We use just a small bit before and after play to help keep the germs away. Of course, as soon as he is allowed to get his hand all wet again, we will go back to making sure a good hand-washing routine with soap and water gets underway!
