    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When you are sick, it is important to rest up and avoid close contact with others to prevent the spread of illness.

    You should never cover your coughs and sneezes.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Covering your coughs and sneezes is an important way to prevent the spread of germs and prevent others from getting sick. By covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow, you can help to contain respiratory droplets that may contain viruses or bacteria. This is especially important during cold and flu seasons or during outbreaks of contagious illnesses. Therefore, the statement that you should never cover your coughs and sneezes is incorrect.

    It is safe to use your sleeve to cover your nose if you do not have a tissue.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using your sleeve to cover your nose when you don't have a tissue can be considered safe because it helps to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. When you sneeze or cough into your sleeve, it acts as a barrier to trap the droplets and reduce the risk of them being dispersed into the air or onto surfaces. However, it is still important to wash your hands afterwards and avoid touching your face to maintain good hygiene practices.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to wash or sanitize your hands when you are sick because this helps to prevent the spread of germs and reduce the risk of infecting others. When we are sick, we often cough or sneeze into our hands, which can transfer germs onto surfaces or objects that we touch. By washing or sanitizing our hands regularly, we can eliminate these germs and minimize the chances of spreading illness to others.

  • 8. 

    Washing your hands often can keep you from getting sick.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Regular handwashing is an effective way to prevent the spread of germs and reduce the risk of getting sick. Germs can easily transfer from our hands to our mouth, nose, or eyes, leading to infections and illnesses. By washing our hands frequently with soap and water, we can remove these germs and prevent their entry into our bodies. This simple hygiene practice is particularly important during times of outbreaks or when dealing with contagious diseases. Hence, the statement "Washing your hands often can keep you from getting sick" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    How long should you scrub your hands?

    Correct Answer
    20 seconds
    Explanation
    You should scrub your hands for 20 seconds because this is the recommended duration to effectively remove dirt, germs, and bacteria from your hands. Washing your hands for less than 20 seconds may not be sufficient to eliminate all the pathogens, while washing for longer than 20 seconds may not provide any additional benefits in terms of cleanliness. Therefore, 20 seconds is the optimal duration for hand scrubbing to maintain proper hygiene.

Keeping these objects clean can help reduce the chances of spreading illness to others.
