My child keeps touching the elevator buttons, I’m afraid?

Elevator buttons are often touched by many people and can potentially be a source of germs and bacteria. To help prevent your child from getting sick, you can encourage them to wash their hands frequently, especially after touching elevator buttons or other shared surfaces. You can also carry hand sanitizer with you and use it before and after using the elevator. Additionally, wearing a mask can help protect your child from breathing in any potential respiratory illness.
