Protect Yourself AND OTHERS…
The UK Health Security Agency, (UKHSA), has published a blog with ‘Simple and effective ways to protect yourself and others‘.
It talks about the airborne nature of the virus, and the risks posed to us all in our daily lives.
And it’s a reminder that it’s possible to catch coronavirus from people we may not even have had close contact with.
They’ve listed five actions that will help protect you and others around you.
- get vaccinated
- avoid other people if you have COVID-19 symptoms or test positive
- let fresh air in
- wear a face covering
- remember hand washing and the basics of good hygiene
