How to stay safe on World Water Day
For events still going ahead
We appreciate this is a difficult decision. Please follow your national authority’s advice and the World Health Organization’s (WHO) guidelines on keeping meetings and workplaces safe.
For events cancelled or postponed
We understand how disappointing it is to postpone or cancel a World Water Day event, but there are still ways to meet online or get together in smaller groups. We have assembled links to help you host an event online.
All Hands on World Water Day
ash your hands regularly with water and soap or alcohol-based hand rub.
WHO has these step-by-step visual guidelines to handwashing.
In some parts of the world there is little or no awareness of good hygiene practices and their role in reducing the spread of disease. However, it is often the case that even when people do have knowledge of good hygiene behaviour, they lack the soap, safe water and washing facilities they need to make positive changes to protect themselves and their community.
This #WorldWaterDay, let’s show our best hand hygiene moments to fight #COVID19.
