Stay Informed

It’s important to stay informed, however there are lots of different sources providing varying information. This could be adding fuel to your anxiety/worries so we suggest going directly to reliable sources and ignore what’s on your feeds.

Hands. Face. Space.

Hands – wash your hands regularly and for at least 20 seconds

Face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet

Space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings)
