Our phones are now devices used to look up and share all sorts of information. Most of us would've handed our phones to friends, family members, or even strangers to show information or a photo.
To reduce the risk of transferred germs from other people's hands it's better to send them the picture or information, rather than handing over your phone.
If your phone hasn't been disinfected in a while, rather than holding the phone to your face to speak try using speakerphone or headphones with a microphone. This way you're reducing the germs transferring directly to your face.
Make sure you clean your phone before handing it to children, not just after they give it back. Our phones can now play videos and games, and they're a great way to keep children entertained. Children are more likely to rub their eyes or touch their faces, so it is best to clean your phone before giving it to them. This is particularly important for any smaller children who may put the phone in their mouth!
