Coronavirus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is important for us all to practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a tissue or failing that, into a flexed elbow).
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about Coronavirus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. It is critical that everyone continues to protect against infection by washing hands frequently (for a minimum of 20 seconds) or by using an alcohol-based hand sanitiser, and by not touching your face. Vaccinating yourself against Coronavirus is proven to provide a high rate of protection against Coronavirus; reducing both the chances of contracting Coronavirus and minimising the severity of symptoms if it is contracted.
