Your mother was right!

When was the last time you washed your hands? 

Flu season is here with all its associated sneezes and coughs.  Did you know that influenza is transmitted through coughs, sneezes and contaminated objects such as supermarket trolleys and work surfaces?  In everyday situations you should try to minimise the risk of transmission of infection to yourself and others by following standard precaution procedures to ensure a basic level of infection control. 

Let’s revisit some of the tried-and-true infection control procedures recommended by mothers everywhere…

  • Wash hands with soap and water (or apply alcohol-based hand rub)
    • before and after touching commonly used items/surfaces such as desks, kitchen surfaces etc.
    • before eating and drinking
    • before and after touching another person
    • after coughing or sneezing
  • Have your children wash their hands between activities and before eating or drinking
  • Make your own tea or coffee
  • Avoid touching items/surfaces belonging to others with flu-like symptoms

Always assume that there is a risk of being exposed to infection, follow infection control steps and you could avoid the cold and flu season altogether!
