In addition, we would like to provide the following information to support you during this time:

Good Hygiene is the best defence against COVID-19

Following good hygiene practices is the most effective way of protecting yourself from COVID-19

This includes:

  • Washing your hands regularly with soap and water, especially before eating, preparing food, smoking and using the toilet.  Follow these five steps every time.

–          Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.

–          Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.

–          Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.

–          Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.

–          Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

  • Utilise alcohol based hand sanitiser when you can’t use soap and water.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing with a tissue – or cough into your elbow. Dispose of the tissue into a bin and then wash your hands afterwards.
  • Wherever possible avoid touching your face as this is the primary route of exposure (eyes, nose & mouth).

Use of surgical masks in the community are only helpful in preventing people who already have COVID-19 from spreading it to others. If you are well, you do not need to wear a surgical mask.

Remain at home if you feel unwell and have symptoms of COVID-19

If you are unwell and suspect you may have COVID-19 (cold and flu like symptoms, including fever, cough, sore throat, fatigue and breathing difficulties), we request that you remain at home and seek medical advice.
