Protect yourself and others

Good personal hygiene can help stop the spread of COVID-19:

  • Clean your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand rub/sanitiser.

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing and sneezing or use your elbow, not your hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms, and stay home if you have these symptoms.

  • Avoid touching your face and avoid shaking hands with others.

  • Try to maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from others as much as possible, and avoid crowded places.

  • Get tested if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. This includes children from 0-17 years of age.
