How to avoid catching and spreading germs

There are things you can do to help stop germs like coronavirus spreading:

  • Maintain good personal hygiene.
  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
  • Always wear P.P.E. (Personal Protective Equipment) when providing personal care.
  • If you have arrived back from China or specified areas in the last 14 days, follow the advice for returning travellers.
