Guaymallén washes his hands

The most populous department of Mendoza installed a lavatory on the sidewalk for passers-by to sanitize. Surprise for the residents of Guaymallén.

Solidarity fingerprint

One of the main recommendations of the World Health Organization is to constantly wash your hands with plenty of soap and water. Guaymallén understood it perfectly and had a gesture of solidarity . Now, neighbors passing through the nerve areas of that department have no excuse for not complying with the rules. In the corner of Bandera de Los Andes and Libertad streets, a pump with a pool was installed . In addition, a soap was left aside. Everything will be guarded by the municipal preventers so that it will not be stolen.

The chosen point is one of the busiest in Guaymallén. The municipal headquarters is two blocks away, while the intersection houses banks, cafes, bus stops and other services usually attended. Go to the ATM, manipulate money, touch the button, lean on the walls or poles. Any of these attitudes puts us at risk and exposes us to COVID-19.

Therefore, if the activity we carry out is essential and not we can stay at home, Guaymallén puts this fixed point of hand washing to the rapid availability of all. More considering the lack of some items in supermarkets or pharmacies, such as gel alcohol.

It is important to note that, as reported by this body, hands are the main carriers of germs, so their correct cleaning is a key to preventing disease and contagion.

Reduced service

However, the fixed cleaning point in Guaymallén does not work 24 hours a day. It only does so at times of greater concentration of people, coinciding with the time when security personnel are providing service. Thus, the lavatory is used by a good number of people and monitored by preventers. At times when there are not many people and there are no security personnel, the service gets up.
