Handwashing Policy

At UBCC, children and staff wash hands often to reduce the spread of germs that can cause illness. Children are taught proper hand-washing techniques, as outlined by the King County Department of Public Health and are supervised or assisted to ensure thatappropriate practices are followed. It is important that you and your child’s hands are washed before or immediately upon entering their classroom. When washing hands at UDCC, please adhere to the following procedure:

  1. Turn on water and adjust temperature.
  2. Wet hands and apply a liberal amount of soap.
  3. Rub hands in a wringing motion from wrists to fingertips, between fingers and under fingernails for a period of no less than 20 seconds.
  4. Rinse hands thoroughly.
  5. Dry hands using an individual paper towel.
  6. Use hand-drying towel to turn off water faucet(s) and open any door knob/latch before discarding.
