BCWD Update: BCWD Observes Global Hand Washing Day 2020

Every October 15 each year, the world celebrates the Global Hand Washing Day. The event highlights the importance and the benefits of washing our hands regularly.
“Global Hand Washing Day serves as a yearly reminder that hand washing with soap and water is one of the best steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. The observance was established by the Global Hand Washing Partnership in 2008. This year’s theme, “Hand Hygiene for All,” seeks to raise awareness of making soap and water available globally, especially in public places, schools, and health care facilities. It also calls for institutions and individuals to improve hand hygiene efforts in the COVID-19 response that can outlast the pandemic and ensure continued access to clean water and soap.” – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The Butuan City Water District would like to remind everyone that one of the best, the simplest, and the most efficient ways to stop the spread of germs and viruses is to wash our hands regularly with soap and water as keeping hands clean can prevent diarrheal illnesses and respiratory infections.
