In recent weeks cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) have been seen in an increasing number of countries across the world and we expect to continue to see more cases.
There some simple and effective actions everyone can take to protect themselves and their wider community:
1) Wash your hands frequently and catch coughs and sneezes in a tissue
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
2) Be prepared to self-isolate in home
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority
Maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
3) Plan ahead based on your situation.
Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
