Health protection

There are four key things that you can do throughout your day to help reduce the chances of catching and spreading the virus:

1) Washing your hands- You should continue to do this thoroughly and regularly throughout the day for 20 seconds with soap and warm water. This includes when you've been outside, before you touch your face, before you eat and after using the bathroom.

2) Social Distancing - Staying 2m away from people when outside of your house remains crucial in helping reduce the circulation of the virus. This is especially important in busy public areas like shops, stores and on public transport.

3) Practising "Catch it, Kill it, Bin it" - Whenever you cough or sneeze, do it into a tissue or the fold of your arm. Then bin the tissue and wash your hands thoroughly.

4) Face coverings - Wear face covering when you are in any busy enclosed public space. If you go to the shops, use public transport or visit a hospital then face coverings are mandatory and are a legal requirement. They could be an old piece of fabric or a simple scarf. (Some people are exempt from wearing them)
