Respiratory infections including Coronavirus (COVID-19): staying well and protecting others

How to reduce the risk of respiratory infections including coronavirus (COVID-19) to keep ourselves and each other well.

Respiratory infections including COVID-19 spread when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, and droplets and aerosols from their mouth or nose are launched into the air.
