The Wash Your Hands campaign, will launch in-conjunction with Global Handwashing Day on October 15, to reinforce healthy habits within the community. The campaign is sponsored by Warren County Water District, Simpson County Water District, Butler County Water System and the Barren River District Health Department. This community wide Wash Your Hands campaign brings attention to proper handwashing in an effort to keep our community healthy.
“The Barren River District Health Department works to help our communities stay at their optimal health and we are always eager to form partnerships with other organizations that are interested in promoting healthy lifestyles – that’s why this alliance with Warren, Simpson and Butler Water has proven to be successful in the past. As always, our outreach is stronger when we band together,” stated Ashley Lillard, Barren River District Health Department Community Health Promotion Director.
The wash your hands campaign provides free mirror clings for schools, daycares, businesses and other organizations to use in their facilities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, handwashing is the single most important thing we can do to keep from getting sick and spreading illness to others.
General Manager John Dix is pleased to launch this campaign once again with BRDHD. “The overwhelming response from businesses and schools was a big reason to continue this campaign and partnership. Our team received positive feedback regarding the important reminders to wash for 20 seconds or sing the Happy Birthday song. Our message is simply to spread the word, not the germs.”
To receive free mirror clings/posters for your school/daycare, business or organization stop by the offices of Warren County Water District, Simpson County Water District, Butler County Water System or the Barren River District Health Department.
