Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus

Good hygiene.

  • If you feel ill, do not attend public gatherings and endanger other people.

  • Wash your hands regularly with an alcohol based hand-wash or soap.

    • Hand sanitisers are good but are not as effective as frequent hand-washing with soap and water followed by thorough drying.

  • Cough or sneeze into the bend of your elbow or use disposable tissues.

    • If you use tissues, dispose of them immediately into a covered container.

  • Avoid shaking hands, hugging, etc.

  • Spraying surfaces with disinfectant.

  • The current advice is to stay 2m away from anyone known to be ill with Covid-19 but that is a measure many people are adopting, as an extra precaution, even when with those not infected.
