If you’ve never had a staph infection before or have never been around someone with a staph infection before, let me tell you that those things are NASTY.

And they can be incredibly dangerous.

So it’s best that you all pay attention to this viral TikTok video from a nurse named Jess who warned people about what could happen if people aren’t careful with their smartwatches.

Jess said a patient of hers got a staph infection from their Apple Watch and she showed viewers how to clean their watches so they don’t get an infection.

She said, “This is your reminder to clean your Apple Watch band.”

The caption to her video reads, “This is your sign to clean your watch band especially if you wear it to workout.”

Yikes, that’s pretty scary…
