For Clean Your Hands Day this May 5, we want to thank everyone who’s making a difference by following public health measures, including cleaning their hands.
We’ve cleaned our hands, stayed home, provided care, worn masks, practised physical distancing and now we’re getting vaccinated too. Together, our efforts have saved lives, protected those who are vulnerable and supported friends, families and neighbours in our communities.
Whether you’re a member of the public, patient, visitor, essential care partner, provider or work in a healthcare setting, maintaining good hand and respiratory hygiene are very important personal practices that help reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others.
This May 5 and every day, join us in celebrating everyone who is making a difference by following local public health guidance.
