Keep your hands clean & our residents healthy!
Hands can heal, comfort, protect, defend…and pass on germs. Hand washing is the single most effective means of preventing the spread of illness.
Did you know?
- 80% of all infectious diseases are transmitted by touch
- Doubling your hand washing time can lead to a 10x reduction in skin bacteria
- Hot or Cold Water? It doesn’t matter!
- Keeping your hands clean saves lives! (Especially during flu season)
When you visit St. Joseph’s Villa, look for the gentle reminder notices posted at all our main
entrances. Alcohol based hand sanitizing gels are mounted throughout our home to encourage
everyone to help us protect those you love! Help us “rub out germs” regularly!
If you are feeling unwell or recovering from a recent illness, consider postponing your visit until
you feel better. We look forward to seeing you!
