How to behave - latest advice

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly

Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

You should also:

  1. wash your hands with soap and water often – for at least 20 seconds
  2. wash your hands as soon as you get home
  3. cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  4. put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands
  5. not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
