Doorknobs, Elevator Buttons, and H1N1: Politico Notices That Around D.C. Government Buildings are Newly Installed Hand Sanitizing Dispenser Stations

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.

    What company makes this particular sanitizer? Do they service them, or does the janitorial service provide refills?

    The way they did this at my daughter’s school was to simply put out a small table next to a high trafficked door. On the table they put large sanitizing hand lotion bottles that they got from a local Costco (or perhaps Sam’s Club).
