The Germiest Places In Schools (And How To Keep Your Kid Healthy)


Door Handles

As mentioned above, high-touch surfaces are really germy — and this goes for door handles, which are touched by essentially every person in a class.  “People will cough into their hand as they’re walking into a classroom and then open the door and then right after them come the other kids and all touching the same surfaces,” Liu said.  According to Liu, if a long period of time passes between door handle touches, there is less risk for virus spread. But for somewhere like a school ― where students are likely heading into a classroom back to back ― there isn’t time for the amount of virus on a handle to decrease.  “Especially during the seasons when kids who are having symptoms and coughing and sneezing into their hands, those [high-touch] objects will probably carry a lot of transmissible viable virus,” Liu added.  Liu noted that kids, particularly, have a hard time refraining from unconsciously touching their faces, which can allow sicknesses picked up from places like door handles to spread into their mouths, eyes or noses. She stressed that it’s important to teach children about the importance of proper handwashing ahead of back-to-school season.

Water Fountains

“Multiple studies have shown that water fountains can be a place where microbes congregate, as the human mouth is loaded with bacteria, and water tends to splash onto the faucet from the face and mouth,” Long said.  Additionally, these are one of those shared high-touch surfaces that carry an increased risk for virus spread.  Just think about it: Lots of kids touch the water fountain every day, whether they’re getting a sip of water or filling up their reusable water bottles.

Shared Keyboards And Shared Computer Mice

According to Liu, other high-touch shared objects like any communal keyboards or computer mice are also red flags for germ spread. This could be computers in the school library or even a computer used for student presentations.  It’s important that children (and teachers!) sanitize or wash their hands after putting their hands on these potentially grubby surfaces.

Reusable Cafeteria Trays

While cafeteria plates and cups get washed after every use, the same isn’t always said for reusable cafeteria trays.  They’re touched by lots of different students without cleaning, which makes them a germy item. According to Long, these reusable trays can be “sources of infection.”

Note: bathrooms aren’t as germy as you’d think.

“Interestingly, restroom surfaces are often cleaned frequently, so restrooms may be one of the cleanest locations in a school,” Long said. (But it’s still crucial to wash your hands after using the bathroom.)

But while bathrooms themselves aren’t as dirty as often assumed, the door handles can be, Long noted.
