MACOMB/MOLINE, IL -- You can help yourself and your loved ones stay healthy by washing your hands often.

Follow these steps every time:

• Wet your hands with clean, running water (preferably warm), turn off the tap, and apply soap.

• Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap and lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.

• Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum - or sing - the WIU Fight Song.

• Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.

• Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
