  • Germs and Worms: wearing of shoes to protect against worms burrowing into the skin
  • Houses: keeping areas clean, especially food preparation areas; refrigerating leftovers as germs can grow on food; putting rubbish into bins and keeping dogs away; ensuring the toilets are working
  • Keeping clean: looking after your skin with a good wash every day
  • Hand washing: stopping the spread of germs through proper hand washing.
