Nothing is worse than taking a test with the sniffles or missing a big football game because you’re home with the flu. Stay healthy this school year by washing your hands frequently. Washing your hands is one of the best ways to slow the spread of germs. Scrub up after you use the bathroom, touch frequently used surfaces like water fountains and doorknobs, and before and after you eat. If it’s tough to stop by the bathroom to wash your hands between classes, try carrying a mini bottle of hand sanitizer with you. It’s not a replacement for hand soap, but it’s certainly a good option in a pinch.
