Coronavirus COVID-19 Update
Please remember, we should all do everything possible to try to reduce the risk of infection, to slow down the transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
There are simple things we can all do to reduce the risk of respiratory and other infections such as seasonal colds and flu such as:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
If any residents have concerns regarding the Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), further information can be found on the NHS Coronavirus website.
