Novel Coronavirus – protect yourself and your family

While we are still learning about this new virus it’s important that everyone should know how to protect themselves from it.
• Protect yourself from the virus, as you would for the flu:
• Regularly wash your hands (for at least 20 seconds with warm water and soap and dry thoroughly)
• Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze
• Stay home if you’re sick
• Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms
• If you do feel unwell you should avoid public gatherings and events
• On current advice, hand and cough hygiene are more effective than masks for reducing the spread of novel Coronavirus.
