Coronavirus - official information and advice

Catch it. Bin it. Kill it.

Everyone is encouraged to look after themselves and play their part in helping to slow the spread of viruses and germs, including coronavirus, and reduce the impact on NHS services. 

The repeated advice from experts at Public Health England is that good hygiene practices are the best way to prevent the spread of viruses and germs.

  • Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds, especially after:
    • using public transport
    • when you get home or into work
    • eat or handle food
    • you blow your nose, sneeze or cough. 
  • Catch it. Bin it. Kill it. 
    • always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. 
    • then bin the tissue and wash your hands with soap and water
    • use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your face, especially if you haven't washed your hands.
