The CDC states COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.  It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object which has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.  This is the reason it is vitally important for people to wash their hands after touching community used items like door handles, gas pumps, and credit card processing machines.

A common method taught to children is to recite their ABCs or sing ‘Happy Birthday’ when washing their hands with soap and water. The CDC recommends hands should be washed for at least 20 seconds with soap and water when visibly soiled, before eating, and after using the restroom.

However, have we really been taught the proper method to wash our hands?  To avoid contaminating others, medical professionals are taught the proper method to wash their hands.  This video using black dye shows the proper way to make certain all the surfaces on your hand are washed.
