Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice

Posted by in Website on 3rd March 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As we deal with industries where hygiene is of the utmost importance, we thought we'd issue some guidelines around good general care to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

There is plenty of information out there, but distilling it down in to easy to understand advice is what we're aiming to do. So, here's what we've put together for you.

What is the Coronavirus?

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus. 

What are the symptoms?

  • A cough
  • A high temperature
  • Shortness of breath

But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

How do I avoid catching it? Do's & Don'ts.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • Put used tissues in the bin immediately
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • DO NOT touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

If you need anymore advice or guidance on this matter, please visit the NHS website or take a look at what the World Health Organization has to say about it.
