  • Cover your mouth – when coughing or sneezing, ensure you do it into a tissue, throw it out and immediately wash your hands.
  • Distance – keep your distance from people.
  • Transport – avoid public transport due to the cast amount of germs on the surfaces

  • Touching – do not touch your face
  • Travel – avoid travelling and keep up to date with all new information

The most important thing is to stay alert and not to panic. Panicking will be your worst enemy and you should not give in. Avoid reading the news  so much and stay updated with information coming from formal bodies such as the HSE or WHO.

By following the guidelines we can stop it from getting worse. Please stay in your homes and self isolate. It is not worth taking the risk and it is up to us to stop it getting as bad as Italy.
