Wash your hands regularly. You should wash your hands:
after coughing or sneezing
before, during and after you prepare food
after using the toilet
when caring for the sick
when hands are dirty
after handling animals or animal waste
Wash your hands with soap and running water when hands are visibly dirty.
If your hands are not visibly dirty, wash them with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub.
Cover your mouth and nose with a clean tissue when you cough and sneeze and then promptly dispose of the tissue in a bin and wash your hands. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into the bend of your elbow instead, not into your hands.
