How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus
The best way to protect yourself and others is to:
- wash your hands with soap and water often; do this for at least 20 seconds
- always wash your hands when you get home or into work
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
- try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
- do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
If you have a high temperature or a continuous cough you should stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. Read the NHS guidance for staying at home.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
If you think you have symptoms and cannot cope at home you should contact NHS 111.
