  • stay at home if you have a cough, or a high temperature.
  • stay 2 metres away from other people if you are outside.
A person washing their hands for 20 seconds
  • wash your hands more often - for 20 seconds each time.
A person catching a cough in a tissue
  • cover your mouth when you cough.
A person wearing a facemask
  • Wear something over your nose and mouth if you are in a shop or on public transport.

This can be a cloth face-covering like a scarf or bandanna. Do not use a medical facemask.
