STOP! Clean Your Hands Day

Infection Prevention & Control

May 5, 2021 is STOP! Clean Your Hands Day

May 5, 2021 is STOP! Clean Your Hands Day, a national campaign to encourage everyone to perform hand hygiene to prevent the spread of infections and save lives.

This year, we would like to recognize STOP! Clean Your Hands Day by saying – Thank You.

Hand hygiene has been a daily topic of conversation everywhere since the COVID-19 outbreak was declared a pandemic over a year ago and you have all stepped up. Thank you for taking the time to clean your hands this year. It is making a difference.

We are also excited to share the updated Provincial hand hygiene policy and procedure and supporting documents on ahs.ca.
