  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • Always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • Avoid events with large groups of people
  • Avoid close contact with people who have symptoms of coronavirus
  • Only travel on public transport if you need to
  • Use phone, online services, or apps to contact your GP surgery or other NHS services
