Politico has noticed little hand sanitizing stations popping up around Washington D.C. government buildings. I actually think that this is a great idea. During flu seasons, and when there are viral outbreaks out of the ordinary, as with H1N1, it wouldn’t hurt to have such sanitizers in public places, especially alongside doors that are frequently being touched by a lot of people.
I actually suggested such a thing for a high traffic area at my daughter’s elementary school. The principal agreed, and put out a hand sanitizing dispenser table.
