Hand Hygiene

Here is a reminder about the importance of hand hygiene.  Please make sure that your children are aware of these points, especially the importance of washing hands with soap and drying them.


You can you use any temperature of water to wash your hands, cold and warm water both kill germs and viruses – as long as you use soap

Handwashing V Sanitizer

Handwashing with soap and water or using hand sanitizer, when done correctly are both highly effective at killing most germs and viruses. Hand sanitizer however will most likely be more convenient when at the hall. However, hands still need to be washed for at least 20 seconds using the correct hand washing methods.

Dry your hands!

Be sure to dry your hands - wet hands spread germs up to 1000 faster than dry hands. Best practice is to use disposable paper towels to dry hands in order to prevent spreading of germs however if they are not available then please ensure hands are dried, for example using hand dryers. 


When to wash your hands

Hands should be washed on a regular basis but especially:

  • After coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose

  • Before and after eating

  • After using the toilet

  • After handling rubbish 

  • After touching high touch points (Such as entrance doorways & exits)
