Respiratory and Hand Hygiene
Simple Steps to Avoid Illnesses and Save Lives

Especially during cold and flu season, the importance of effective respiratory hygiene and hand hygiene to reduce the spread of disease and illness cannot be overstated. Help promote the hygiene awareness to educate others on the simple steps they can do to avoid spreading diseases. Below are education materials that can be downloaded and printed. Additional materials such as posters and cling-ons (self-sticking signs) can be ordered free of charge.

All About Hand Washing

Influenza Information

Norovirus Information - Noroviruses are highly contagious and can cause people to have gastronenteritis, an inflammation of the stomach and intestines. Hand washing is highly recommended to protect yourself and others from getting and spreading Noroviruses.

Why Don't We Do It In Our Sleeves (Note: There is no scientific evidence that coughing in one's sleeve or on one's arm will reduce flu transmission but viewers might be benefited by seeing the graphic effects of unprotected coughs/sneezes on the spread of disease.)
