How you can help stop the spread

Actions you can take to avoid getting sick and prevent the spread:

  • practice good hygiene, such as frequent handwashing with soap and water (lather for at least 20 seconds before you rinse)
  • avoid touching your face
  • cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough (use the inside of your elbow or shoulders)
  • avoid touching other people (use alternatives to handshakes)
  • avoid sharing personal items (such as drinking glasses and eating utensils)
  • regularly clean items you touch a lot: phones, keyboards, doorknobs, steering wheels, desks and countertops
  • stay home if you feel ill
