Today is Global Handwashing Day!

It is an opportunity to remind ourselves of the importance of hygiene and hand washing, and it is more important than ever in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic to remember that washing our hands is an important part of beating this virus.

Frequent hand washing with soap, coupled with the wearing of face masks and social distancing, reduces the risk of Covid-19 and we must all remember that Hands, Face and Space all go hand in hand!

We wash our hands to protect our family, we wear a face covering to protect our friends and colleagues and we make space to particularly protect the most vulnerable in our society.

So this Global Handwashing Day let us champion – Hands, Face, Space!
