PPE and hand hygiene

Hand hygiene

Frequent hand hygiene is important in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and other infections. Soap & water or alcohol hand gel can be used. Alcohol hand gel must be used safely. Consider risk to the public if they consume it and fire risk (do not use over carpeted areas).
