Proper handwashing is always the preferred method for infection control. When that is not possible, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.

The university provides and maintains hand hygiene stations campus-wide, including handwashing areas with soap, running warm water, and disposable paper towels or air dryers, as well as an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing 60% or more alcohol for public areas where handwashing is not feasible.

5 Steps to Clean Hands

CDC recommends a 5-step process for hand washing:

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold); turn off the tap and apply soap.
  2. Lather your hands with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air-dry them.
