We can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus
- Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:
- Wash your hands often-with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren't available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- If you have been to one of the destinations that the government have highlighted as a risk and you feel unwell, stay at home and don't attend work or school.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
- If you're worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 - don't go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
