Find Deals, Not Germs This Black Friday

Do you have plans to go out shopping this Black Friday? Deals aren’t the only thing you need to watch for! The malls and shopping centers are filled with customers who bring along germs, bacteria, and viruses. Here are a few tips to help you avoid germs this Black Friday: Use Hand Sanitizer: High touch-point surfaces in malls such as credit card machines, escalator handrails and discount bins are covered with harmful germs. Frequently use hand sanitizer to help kill any germs you have picked up throughout your shopping day. Avoid Touching Your Face: Without even realizing it, on average we touch our face 2-5 times per minute. Touching your eyes, nose or mouth gives bacteria direct access into your body. Carry Disinfecting Wipes: Those long shopping days will make you hungry! With that being said, food court tables are used often but rarely cleaned between uses. Carry a travel pack of disinfecting wipes with you to clean the table your eating at and the carts you are pushing. For more tips on avoiding germs this flu season, visit our Facebook Page.

They are handled by a high volume of students each day, exposing the tray surface to a variety of harmful germs. Art Supplies – Paint brushes, markers, crayons and scissors are used daily by students, but are rarely disinfected. Considering the flu virus can live on a hard surface for up to 24 hours, these materials can easily pass germs from student to student. Backpacks – From the bus floor, to the classroom floor and sometimes the locker room. Backpacks are a hot spot for bacteria, picking up germs everywhere your child takes it. They are rarely washed and get brought back into your home each day after school. Keyboards/Tablets – Many schools… Read More
