If you need further advice / think you may have contracted the disease – Telephone NHS 111 (NHS 24 111 in Scotland).

We would also like to issue the following as good practice advice:

Public places are a perfect breeding ground for this virus and we would ask that you:

  1. Promote the increase in usage of (effective) hand sanitisers (both for yourself, your colleagues and the public). Effective sanitisers have a high alcohol content.
  2. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with approved antibacterial soap – try to do this habitually when leaving a room / entering a room.
  3. Use paper towels for drying your hands – these can then be used for opening doors / cupboards and then discarded.
  4. Try to reduce contact with other people (eg do not shake hands) and much used surfaces.
  5. Try to monitor product levels of soap / sanitizer / hand towels as the increased usage will mean stock running out sooner than normal.
  6. Discuss effectiveness of all antibacterial products with your operations manager.
