How to stay COVID Safe
Catching the virus
The virus is in the air around people who have the virus.
You don’t know who has the virus.
Keep your distance. Wear a mask.
The virus stays on surfaces.
If you touch something another person has touched do not touch your face.
Touching your face can transfer the virus into your body.
Wash your hands thoroughly and often or use hand sanitiser with at least 60% alcohol.
If you feel unwell
Getting a test is simple.

Care from a distance
If you know someone who is isolating, please support them from a distance.
A person with or without symptoms who is waiting for a test result must not leave their home.
You can help them stay at home comfortably by delivering nutritious food to their doorstep, phoning them each day to see how they are, and asking if they need anything.
Please be a good neighbor - friend - family member and help stop the spread of the virus.
