Advice on COVID-19


Don’t panic


If you are to wear a disposable mask, ensure they are correctly disposed of after every use. This is because disposable masks work by trapping harmful particles inside the mesh of fibres of which they are made. This hazardous build-up cannot be cleaned out or disinfected without damaging the fibres or other components of the mask such as the straps. This means that wearing the mask several times decreases the efficiency of their purpose.Image result for catch it bin it

The virus, just like the common cold or the flu, is suspected to spread via cough droplets, which may get into the body through the mouth, nose or eyes.

The best way to prevent catching or spreading the virus is by washing your hands with warm water and soap after using public transport, toilets, coughing or sneezing, and before handling food.

If your hands are not clean, avoid rubbing your eyes or touching your mouth or nose.

Hand sanitizers are useful if soap and water are not available.

Ultimately, your normal basic hygiene regime should be effective. 


Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading


Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person

  • travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
