The CDC (Centers For Disease Control and Prevention)
recommends hand washing first and hand sanitizing second, in

place of washing if that is not possible.

According to the CDC, washing your hands is the first line of defense against preventing disease. Clean Hands Count is a campaign kicked off by the CDC and is critical now during the COVID-19 pandemic.

CDC has posted some hand hygiene research and other informative data. One website posted a homemade recipe for hand sanitizer, here.

While this information can help, it should not be used alone or as a sole means of defense against the COVID-19 virus. Instead, in conjunction with staying home, limiting trips to run essential errands, and other local, state, and federal guidelines and recommendations.
