- 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
