Catch it, bin it, kill it

Germs can live on some surfaces for hours, to protect yourself and others:

  1. Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands.
  2. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport.
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  4. Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
