A FEW TIPS ON HOW TO REDUCE EXPOSURE AND STAY HEALTHY DURING COVID 19

The most important action you can take is to practise good hand hygiene.

To reduce your exposure and chances of getting COVID 19 :

  • Wash your hand often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.  If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitiser with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues in the bin and clean your hands with soap and water or sanitiser.  If you do not have a tissue, sneeze or cough into a flexed elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces each day.
  • STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK and do not expose others.  If you are unwell with flu-like symptoms, do not go outside your home, do not go to work.
  • Get a flu shot when it is available.
  • Do not shake hands, hug or kiss when greeting someone.
  • KEEP A DISTANCE of 1.5 metres between yourself and other people.
  • Avoid visiting vulnerable people, such as those in aged care facilities or hospitals, infants or people with compromised immune systems.
  • Visit shops sparingly, buy food online if possible and consider home delivery.
  • Use debit/credit cards instead of cash where possible and make use of online and self serve transactions.
  • WEAR A MASK!
