Coronavirus defence

Cornoavirus Outbreak
How can we help prevent the spread of Coronavirus?

Practising good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best defence against most viruses.

You should:

· wash your hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet

· cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser

· and if unwell, avoid contact with others (touching, kissing, hugging, and other intimate contact).
