Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How to minimise the spread of COVID-19

•    Frequently washing your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, or using an alcohol based hand gel
•    Refraining from touching mouth and nose
•    If coughing or sneezing, covering your nose and mouth with a paper tissue or flexed elbow
•    Dispose of the tissue immediately after use and perform hand hygiene
•    Avoiding close contact with anyone if you, or they, have a cold or flu-like symptoms (maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres).
