Washing your hands has always been important, but maybe no more so than now with the COVID-19 pandemic.
GlobalHandwashing Day is Oct. 15, a day that recognizes the importance of washing hands with soap as an effective way of preventing the spread of disease. This year’s theme “Our future is at hand – Let’s move forward together,” reminds us that we have a responsibility in keeping ourselves and others healthy by simply washing our hands.
So, as Bama fans, let’s do our part. Wash your hands with soap often, and sing “Yea, Alabama!” while you do it. You’ll not only show your Crimson pride but you’ll also be stopping the spread of germs.
