Utah Department of Health reminds people to wash their hands

SALT LAKE CITY – Winter weather and the holidays are upon us, and so is cold and flu season.

The Utah Department of Health reminded people to wash their hands with a playful video Monday.

In the video, a woman is seen leaving a restroom without washing her hands, to her coworkers dismay.

It follows the woman as she touches a drinking fountain, elevator buttons, door handles and a cafeteria tray.

Though the video is lighthearted and funny, getting sick is not.

Washing your hands can prevent the spread of the flu, hepatitis A, and other illnesses.
