Health Promotion

As we are entering the cold and flu season, this is a reminder of the best health practices to decrease the spread and transmission of viruses in PWCS schools.

Please remember to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw used tissues in the trash. If you don't have a tissue, cough, or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands. Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, dry hands with a paper towel, and use the paper towel to turn off the faucet. If soap and water are not available, hand sanitizers may also be used to preform hand hygiene. Remember to stay home when you’re sick until at least 24 hours without a fever or the use of fever reducing medicine. Together we can help stop the spread of germs that may make you and others ill.

Hand Washing

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "the most important thing you can do to keep from getting sick is to wash your hands." Judicious hand washing can prevent not only common diseases like colds, but also more serious diseases like hepatitis A, meningitis, and infectious diarrhea.

Why hand washing is important

  • Children have weaker immune systems than adults and can become sick quicker.
  • 1-in-3 E.coli outbreaks is caused by poor hand washing by food preparers.
  • Germs that cause disease live in meat, vegetables, and more.
  • Germs are spread from unclean hands to food, usually when the food handler doesn't wash after going to the bathroom. Germs are then passed on to those who eat the food.
  • Germs spread from uncooked foods like hamburger to the hands, then from the hands to other foods like salads. The germs can remain in the salads and eventually affect those who eat the food.
  • Putting cooked meat back into its original container re-contaminates the cooked food. - Cutting vegetables on the same board used to cut meat contaminates the vegetables.
