I got off a flight a couple days ago in Los Angeles and made a beeline for the restroom. I wasn’t the only one. But apparently I was the only one who remembered to wash his hands.
Wash Your Hands After Using Restroom – At Home, At The Airport, And Onboard!
I’m ready to ditch the masks, but one thing I’ve learned from the pandemic is to keep my hands clean: proper hygiene is key.
Yes, I did get COVID-19 and lost my sense of smell for several weeks…but no cold or flu the entire season. And I credit that to wearing masks and frequently washing my hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizer.
Colds stink. The flu stinks. We’re on our way out of a deadly pandemic that killed far too many around the world. It simply floored me to see two guys walk into the restroom, use the restroom, and walk right out.
And I saw it earlier in the day as well in Orlando. No joke. Three times in one day likely means it is happening a whole lot more.
I’m not the hygiene police or your mother and so I am not going to speak up if you fail to practice simple hygiene steps.
But please folks, wash your hands after using the toilet. It’s really not rocket science or a conspiracy.
I know we are all anxious to get back to “normal” after putting life on pause for over a year. But if there is one thing we should learn form the pandemic (and there are actually many), it is to practice good hygiene.
Wash. Your. Hands.
