General advice.

Right now to help with the situation you should;-

  • Wash your hands with soap & water often – for at least 20 seconds
  • Drink water on a regular basis this can help remove germs to your stomach where they are more likely to die
  • Always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • Do not shake hands with anyone, customers, contractors or suppliers
  • 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 straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • Avoid taking Ibuprofen if you develop symptoms (We are not sure about this either)

Do Not  touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean this is a common way of you picking up contagion on your hands and actually giving yourself the virus.
