Prevention

Coronavirus is still with us, so we all have a part to play to help keep the virus at by. You should continue to observe the following key behaviours.

Get vaccinated
Let fresh air in
Wear a face mask in crowded spaces

 

Remain cautious to help protect yourself and others.

  • If you haven’t already, get vaccinated and get your booster dose
  • Consider wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet.
  • Let fresh air in if you meet indoors. Meeting outdoors is safer

Follow government guidance on how to live safely with a respiratory infection, including Covid-19.

Good hygiene remains the best prevention:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • 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 immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  • avoid close contact with people who have symptoms of coronavirus
