Wash, wash, wash your hands

Regular hand washing with soap and water remains an essential part of good hygiene and helps prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as other winter illnesses such as colds, flu and stomach bugs.

Hands should be washed with warm water and liquid soap for at least 20 seconds before rinsing and drying them thoroughly. If soap and water are not available, people should use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.

To help raise awareness, we've created a fun and interactive sing-along video to demonstrate how to clean your hands.
