Island-Wide Hygiene Drive: Entities Unite to Teach Schools Proper Handwashing and Cough Etiquette


UNICEF, CBH, and the Ministry of Health lead a vital hygiene campaign in island schools, emphasizing correct handwashing and coughing etiquette.

Senior Health Inspector Julienne Mannix highlights the issue of inappropriate sneezing and handwashing lapses, underscoring the risk of germ spread.

Over the next fortnight, daily teams will equip four schools with supplies, including tissues and soap. Students learn techniques like elbow coughing and proper disposal.

A 30-minute interactive presentation spans one preschool and 29 schools, fostering good hand-washing habits and awareness of germ prevention.

Launched on Tuesday, this campaign crucially instills healthy practices and raises anti-germ consciousness among students. #HygieneInitiative 🌐🤲🤧

  1. As usual, the cart is going before the horse. First provide WATER and then teach them how to wash their hands. This water shit is just ridiculous right now. Thankful to hear the many millions of gallons we now produce, but what’s the use of producing water if it cannot be distributed to households?

  2. 5 Islands didn’t get a drop of water for 2 consecutive weekends. So far this week, we got water 1 evening. Michael Joseph, me ah beg u pleeeez na come ah fu me yard come chat no sh*t.

    Robin Yearwood say that if a govt can’t provide the basics (like water) they don’t deserve to be in govt
