Hand Washing

HAND WASHING – It is difficult to avoid contagious germs at this time of year and it is particularly miserable if you pick up a dreaded lurgy just in time to spoil your Christmas festivities.  Whilst it is impossible to steer clear of friends, colleagues and contact with your fellow travellers who may be harbouring an infection the best course of action is to make sure you wash your hands frequently to reduce your chances of succumbing to contagious viruses.  Wearing gloves may also help prevent spreading infections but when you take them off be sure to still wash your hands before you handle anything else to again prevent infections spreading.  Wishing you a virus free winter!
