  • Have you heard of germs? Do you know what a germ is?

  • Germs can cause you to be sick. They're tiny little micro-organisms that exist all around us.

  • and they are invisible, so small you can't even see them,

  • but they're real. And here are a few common nasty ones.

  • Scary-looking, I know. These germs have favorite places to hide, and live, too.

  • We call these areas germ hotspots, like kitchen countertops, doorknobs,

  • and even your gaming devices and cell phone.

  • And they love to live in your bathroom.

  • If you don't kill these germs, they can spread, and get on you,

  • and then inside you, and make you sick.

  • But, here is the good news.

  • You can kill these germs and help protect yourself

  • by following these three simple clean and healthy germ knockout rules.

  • Number one: build your immune system.

  • A healthy body is a strong body. Always eat lots of veggies and fruit

  • to build your immune system to protect yourself if and when a germ attacks your body.

  • Number two: wash your hands regularly with soap and water.

  • Anytime you encounter a hotspot where germs live, scrub your hands all over,

  • front and back, between fingers, and around nails

  • for as long as it takes to sing "Happy Birthday" twice to really knock those germs out.

  • And three: germs love to spread from one sick person to another,

  • so try to keep your germs to yourself.

  • Cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow

  • to keep your hands clean and your germs contained.

  • Then, wash your hands.

  • Just remember: germs are out there, and they can make you sick.

  • Do your best to help prevent the spread of germs, and knock them out.
