To all in our communities, keep safe, and above all be KIND to others.

Washing hands for 20 seconds is central to the

expanded public awareness campaign to prevent 

and slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).


The importance of washing your hands more often, especially:

  • when you get to work or arrive home
  • after you blow your nose, cough or sneeze
  • before you eat or handle food

You should wash your hands for 20 seconds, using soap and water or hand sanitiser.

You should also cough or sneeze into tissues before binning them.
