On Aug. 3, Kim Cuppy and Mindi Murnion from the Fallon County Health Department came to Plevna School to demonstrate to the kindergarten class how germs travel.

They put “germs” on the students and had them touch their faces, desks or door handles.

Then, they shined black lights on those areas to show how easily the germs jumped from their hands onto whatever they touched.

The students and Mrs. Bidwell washed their hands and once again had a black light shined on them, most of the students did not wash off all of the “germs”!

The demonstration concluded with a quick rundown of how the nurses help our community, and how their job entails helping prevent people from growing ill.
