    We follow our regular hand hygiene guidelines: wash for 1 min (no scrub brush).  Can wash or use hand sanitizer when re-enter the room.

    Are other center requiring staff to do an extended handwash at the start of the shift? 
    How long is the initial scub?
    Are you requiring them to use a scrub brush?
    After the initial scrub (if you do one)  what is your hand hygeine prolicy?
