Keeping yourself and others safe

While COVID-19 is still circulating, there are things we can all continue to do to help keep ourselves and others safe. Taking these simple steps can make a big difference in keeping COVID-19 and other bugs such as Norovirus, colds and flu at bay.

  • Wash or sanitise your hands regularly and follow the usual hygiene advice - such as sneezing or coughing into a tissue or the crook of your arm and remembering to properly dispose of tissues

  • When meeting indoors, open doors and windows where possible to keep air circulating

  • Keep a face covering with you so that you can choose to wear it in busy public areas

  • Wear personal protective clothing when caring for others, especially someone who is vulnerable

If you think you have coronavirus

Although you are no longer legally required to isolate if you have COVID-19 symptoms, there are steps you can take to limit the chance of you passing the virus on:

  • If possible, stay at home while you have symptoms and keep a distance between you and other members of the household

  • If you need to go out, wear a face covering around others or in public places and keep doors and windows open when indoors
