- Wash your hands regularly, especially after using the restroom, before preparing or consuming food, and after using a tissue. Using soap and hot water, wash for about 20 seconds being sure to scrub your nails and between fingers. If water is not available, use of hand sanitizer is acceptable as long as it has at least 70% alcohol.
