Man washing toddler graphic

If you have infants, small children, or others who may need help washing, wash yourself first.

Wear waterproof gloves and a dust mask (or other material to cover your mouth) if you can..

Keep cuts and scrapes (both yours and those you are helping) covered when washing to keep radioactive material out of the wound.

Wash your hands and face after providing help.
