Here's why you should make hand sanitizer dispensers readily available

Hand Sanitizer Station

When COVID-19 established its presence in the US, changing every aspect of American life from working to grocery shopping, the CDC spread the word about best practices for staying safe in public. For instance the CDC emphasized the strong benefit of simply washing ones hands with soap and water for a full 20 seconds, especially after touching ones face, blowing ones nose, coughing, etc.

Scientists believe our fingers can carry anywhere from 2 to 10 million bacteria. While our hands are not hospitable environments for most of these germs long term, they can survive for a few hours, passing from person to person. It's no surprise then that 80% of illness-causing germs are spread by our hands.

The good news is that proper hand washing can reduce respiratory infections (like corona virus) by as much as 20%. But what are patrons supposed to do when they can't wash their hands? After all, many establishments closed their restrooms to the public. (Keeping in mind the disturbing statistic that bacteria counts double after a visit to the restroom, this decision is likely a wise one.) But how should customers keep their hands clean without access to soap and water?

Hand Sanitizers For Proper Hygiene Amidst COVID-19

The CDC recognizes that in public settings, soap and water may not be readily available for hand washing. (Again, especially when establishments are keeping their public restrooms closed.) 

This is why it's important for businesses, hospitals, cafes, airports, bus stations, and any other public facility to offer hand sanitizing stations throughout their premises.
