‘The best options remain:
To stay home when it is not necessary to go out.
To wear a facemask/covering whenever you must go out.
To keep a safe distance from other people at all times, which is social/physical distancing protocol and avoid crowded places
To practice good respiratory hygiene (when coughing or sneezing).
To clean surfaces with a 1 in 6 concentration of bleach and water.
To wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds under running water as often as possible.
“And when facilities for handwashing are unavailable, to sanitize your hands as often as possible using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
