The Wash Your Hands campaign, launches in-conjunction with Global Handwashing Day on October 15, to reinforce healthy habits within the community. The annual campaign is sponsored by Warren County Water District, Simpson County Water District, Butler County Water System and the Barren River District Health Department. This community wide Wash Your Hands campaign brings attention to proper handwashing in an effort to keep our community healthy.
“The Barren River District Health Department works to help our communities stay at their optimal health and we are always eager to form partnerships with other organizations that are interested in promoting healthy lifestyles – that’s why this alliance with Warren, Simpson and Butler Water has proven to be successful in the past. Our outreach is stronger when we band together and is even more important during flu season,” stated Ashley Lillard, Barren River District Health Department Director for Population Health.
The wash your hands campaign provides free mirror clings for schools, daycares, businesses and other organizations to use in their facilities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, handwashing is the single most important thing we can do to keep from getting sick and spreading illness to others.
General Manager Jacob Cuarta is pleased to launch this campaign once again with BRDHD. “The fight against any virus impacts our community and by reinforcing our messaging to properly wash hands for at least 20 seconds will lessen the spread. Frequent and proper hand hygiene is one of the most important things we can all do to prevent infection. Good health is in your hands.”
To receive free mirror clings/posters for your school/daycare, business or organization stop by the offices of Warren County Water District, Simpson County Water District, Butler County Water System or the Barren River District Health Department.
