How To Protect Yourself And Others From Spread Of Covid
You can reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some simple precautions:
Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
Why? When someone coughs, sneezes, or speaks they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person has the disease.
Why? Where people come together in crowds, you are more likely to come into close contact with someone that has COIVD-19 and it is more difficult to maintain physical distance of 1 metre (3 feet).
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and infect you.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene, you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
Why? Avoiding contact with others will protect them from possible COVID-19 and other viruses.
Why? Doctors are in the best position to understand your condition and advise with regards to treatment. Not going to a hospital unnecessarily will protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
