"Teachers are struggling extra hard right now, they are always struggling but this is like a terrible time for them and what Safeguard handwashing is doing is they are developing free handwashing lessons and plans to help their kids from kindergarten to third grade to wash their hands for 30 seconds if not more, and how to wash them correctly."
