Power To Save: Washing your hands

Washing our hands is especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it can be difficult to visualize why. Meteorologist John Hickey shows us how.

MOOSIC, Pa. — We've been hearing a lot of about washing our hands as one of the best ways to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, but how do you show that visually what that's like?

Well, there's really an easy experiment that you can do at home with your kids. It's a great way to visualize how this whole thing works. 

We'd like to thank Chief Meteorologist Brad Panovich from WCNC Charlotte, North Carolina, for the inspiration for this experiment.
