Where to Buy Hand Sanitizer to Reduce the Spread of Coronavirus

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, the world has learned a lesson we should have been far more aware of before — the importance of keeping hands and surfaces sanitized. While the CDC recommends hand washing with soap and water as the best method of reducing the spread of the virus, hand sanitizer is also an important tool for preventing disease when you can't access a sink.

The coronavirus is primarily spread through respiratory droplets that spread when people cough and sneeze, contaminating nearby surfaces. Since many people with COVID-19 are asymptomatic and don't know right away that they have the illness, it is important to behave as though you and others around you may be infected and sanitize hands and surfaces.

Hand sanitizers quickly became one of the most difficult items to find during the early days of the pandemic due to panic buying. But thankfully, many people are now making hand sanitizer using at least 60% alcohol and making it available to buy online. So if you've been struggling to find it, we have the information you need, and a list of stores where you can buy hand sanitizer right now.
