Information & Awareness

Handwashing

Stay alert to the risk of infection and keep your hands and face as clean as possible.

As Muslims, while we do this as part of wudu, remember it is critical to keep washing your hands regularly for 20 seconds with soap and water at regular intervals throughout the day.

Wash them often using soap and water and dry them thoroughly, ideally using a disposable paper towel, not a hand dryer.

Watch the NHS recommended technique here

Use sanitiser where available outside your home, especially as you enter a building and after you have had contact with surfaces outside your home. Employers should ensure it's available in workplaces.

Avoid touching your mouth, eyes and nose, especially if your hands may have become contaminated.
