Friendly Reminder from Nevada County Public Health about Hand Washing

Nevada County Public Health encourages you to wash your hands every time after any animal encounter: petting, feeding, holding, or even visiting the animal area. Animals can carry germs that make people sick, like E. coli and Salmonella. Washing your hands is a great way to protect your health, and the fair has lots hand washing stations and bathrooms available.

Children 5 years and under, people with weakened immune systems, and adults 65+ should take extra precautions at animal exhibits. Even animals that look clean and healthy can carry harmful germs, and areas where animals live or roam can have germs, too – you don’t have to touch an animal to get sick.

What you can do is wash your hands! Running water and soap are best, scrubbing for 20 seconds. (Public Health Pro Tip: singing Happy Birthday is the perfect amount of time to wash your hands!) If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and wash your hands with soap and running water as soon as you can.
