Hepatitis A

Cases of Hepatitis A have been seen recently in Ripon. Handwashing with soap and water is a simple and effective way to prevent the virus and ensure overall health through summer. See NHS advice on how to wash hands thoroughly (share: https://bit.ly/2GEkec5) #CleanHandsNorthYorkshire.

Clean hands are a recipe for good health! Washing your hands before eating, feeding others, or preparing food keeps food clean and prevents illness from spreading. We should also wash our hands thoroughly after using the toilet. Join our #CleanHandsNorthYorkshire campaign by encouraging everyone to wash their hands with soap and water at these critical times and supervise children where possible.
