How to Protect Against Covid-19
Here are our top tips for protecting yourself and your loved ones from Covid-19:
1. Catch it, bin it, kill it…
To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then, wash your hands or use hand-sanitising gel.
2. Clean germ hotspots regularly
Clean and disinfect regularly-touched objects and surfaces using your usual cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people. Kitchens and toilets are hotspots for germs to spread.
3. Keep it dry
After washing surfaces, make sure to dry the damp areas, as dampness enables remaining germs to survive and multiply.
4. Wash Warm
Wash your hands after handling dirty laundry. All underwear, towels and household linen should be washed at 60C (140F) or 40C (104F) with bleach-based detergent to prevent germs from spreading. Don’t leave damp washing in your washing machine, as this can allow germs to rapidly multiply.
5. Wash your hands!
Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.
