The recent outbreak of COVID-19 -- officially recognized as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization -- has brought an extreme awareness to the topic of hand hygiene, not only to the practices of health providers, but to our society at large.

The CDC has a lot of useful resources to assist healthcare providers in establishing best practices, and these same guidelines can help the average person on the street as well!

Check out the CDC's very useful guide, here.
