There are simple steps you can take to reduce your chances of picking up an infection or virus: 

  • Dispose of dirty tissues promptly and carefully
  • Maintain good basic hygiene, for example washing hands frequently with soap and water to reduce the spread of infection from your hands to your face or to other people
  • Clean hard surfaces such as door handles frequently using a normal cleaning product 
  • Make sure children and the elderly follow this advice
