Hand Sanitizer Information

Cleaning hands at key times with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% ethanol or 70% isopropyl alcohol content (if soap and water is not readily available) is one of the most important steps a person can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to those around you.

According to Delaware Department of Education Emergency Order regarding Regulation 817 Medications and Treatments, parents/guardians are not required to provide permission for their student to use hand sanitizer but can indicate to the school that their student is unable to use hand sanitizer or needs assistance with self-use of hand sanitizer.

Please let your School Nurse know if your student should NOT use hand sanitizer or will need assistance. Thank you!
