As well as wearing a face mask, washing your hands regularly, maintaining social distance and isolating if you have any respiratory symptoms, covering your coughs and sneezes also helps stop the spread of germs.

  • COVER your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Put your used tissue in the rubbish BIN.
  • If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, NOT YOUR HANDS.
  • WASH your hands with soap and running water. Dry your hands thoroughly with a disposable paper towel or hand dryer.
