What can I do to protect myself and others?   

- Wash hands thoroughly (at least 20 seconds) with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.  

- Cough and sneeze into your elbow or a tissue (rather than onto your hands), and then put the used tissue straight into the rubbish and wash your hands.  

- Avoid close contact with anyone who has a fever or cough.  

- If you live in a flat, let your flatmates know you are unwell.
