As a reminder for maintaining good personal hygiene for the prevention of illness, make sure you wash your hands after using the restroom, before eating, after touching your face/mouth/nose, cell phone, Hokie Passport and after coming into contact with public surfaces. This will not only help keep you well & healthy but also protect the wellbeing of other individuals around you. Handwashing, if possible, is always the best defense and should be done with warm water, soap and scrubbing for at least 20 seconds. Make sure you use a paper towel to turn off the water and open the bathroom door after using the restroom. The following link provides a video demonstration on proper handwashing techniques. Avoid close contact with those that are sick and stay home if you are sick. Cover your mouth/nose when coughing or sneezing & avoid touching your eyes, nose & mouth; even if you are not sick! Be diligent about cleaning and sanitize surfaces thoroughly- germs can be spread on items such as your cell phone, Hokie Passport, door handles, light switches, stair rails etc. For more information please visit the Virginia Tech Ready webpage.
