Dr Nick Shanks from the Alford Medical Practice has been in touch with some important news for the whole community. Please share this post.
- If you run out of alcohol wipes you can use a diluted bleach solution for an alternative hand wash.
Dilute 1ml of bleach in 99 ml of water ie 1%.
This can be used as a hand wash and hard surface wash. Remember it does damage some materials. Also it is a bit harder on your hands so only use if you have no alcohol wipes for hands. I would use it on all surfaces so long as it does not destroy them.
- YOU SHOULD WASH ALL FRUIT AND VEG THROUGHLY. Any hot food should be hot and any cold food should be cold and have been kept cold as instructed.
