Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Lourdes Gurriel Jr. is helping to keep his teammates safe and healthy by practicing two infection prevention measures important during this coronavirus pandemic: wearing a mask and performing hand hygiene.
Since he re-joined the Blue Jays in the middle of Summer Camp after having remained in Dunedin for an undisclosed reason, Gurriel has often been seen wearing a mask that covers both his nose and mouth.
In Monday’s game against the Washington Nationals, Gurriel was spotted by the Sportsnet broadcast supplying hand sanitizer to Blue Jays players and coaches, reminding them of the need to clean their hands.

So take the lesson from Lourdes Gurriel: always wear a mask or facial covering when physical distancing is difficult and keep your hands clean by using either soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
