National Handwashing Awareness Week

HTH2.5CircleOnly YOU can prevent the Flu!

The 4 Principles of Hand Awareness

1. Wash your hands when they are dirty and BEFORE eating
2. DO NOT cough into your hands
3. DO NOT sneeze into your hands
4. Above all, DO NOT put your fingers into your eyes, nose or mouth

Following the 4 Principles of Hand Awareness you will be in virtual isolation regardless of the people around you. Direct contamination (inoculation) of your mucus membranes (eyes, nose or mouth) is how infectious disease enters your body. It is not wafting through the ventilation system in the building. Let’s work together to minimize the fear factor of infectious disease pandemics or seasonal.

Yes, the power is in your hands to prevent the Flu! Imagine how great it would be if you or your family were never sick again from a respiratory infection! What diseases are these you ask? For example: The Flu, flu-like illness, common cold, conjunctivitis, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, bronchitis, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, Coxsackie virus, Streptococcus, Pneumoccous, TB and more. Do not touch the T Zone! It is the only portal of entry into the human body for ALL respiratory infections!

What is the T Zone?
The T Zone is the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and mouth. Those mucous membranes are the only portals of entry for bacteria that cause respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases. Touching your T Zone with fingers or hands that are contaminated with germs can make you sick. Avoiding the T Zone is the only way to avoid getting a cold, flu or other respiratory illness!

Practicing the 4 Principles of Hand Awareness behaviors will ensure you “stay well”. Imagine never having the flu again!
