How to avoid catching or spreading germs

Do:
• 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.
• Wash your hands with soap and water often and for 20 seconds – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
• Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

Don’t:

Touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean. Here is a link to a video on hand washing

 

Infectious disease outbreaks, like the current Coronavirus (COVID-19), can be scary and can affect our mental health. While it is important to stay informed, there are also many things we can do to support and manage our wellbeing during such times.
