What is the best way to wash my hands?

Washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is the best. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Be sure to cover all surfaces of your hands including commonly missed areas between the fingers, the backs of your hands, and around your thumbs.
