How to stay safe

To prevent the spread of COVID-19

  • Maintain a safe distance from others (at least 1 metre), even if they don’t appear to be sick.

  • Wear a mask in public, especially indoors or when physical distancing is not possible.

  • Choose open, well-ventilated spaces over closed ones. Open a window if indoors.

  • Clean your hands often. Use soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand rub.

  • Get vaccinated when it’s your turn. Follow local guidance about vaccination.

  • Cover your nose and mouth with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.

  • Stay home if you feel unwell.
