VNA advises steps to prevent diseases

This week marks National Handwashing Awareness Week, a campaign aimed to spread the word about the prevention of infectious diseases, according to a new release from the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association.

Preventing diseases can be achieved by practicing a few simple steps, the VNA advised, including:

• Washing your hands when they are dirty and before eating.

• Sneezing and coughing into your arm rather than your hand.

• Not putting your fingers in your nose or mouth.
