DO THE FIVE
- Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
- Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
- Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell
- Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell
Stay Safe: It is important to avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose and mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick. – WHO.
Please ensure to take note of the following:
- You are to wash your hands for a min of 20secs, and thoroughly.
- When wearing a protective mask, do ensure that you only use them whenever you are around people showing symptoms of the infection. Do not reuse a used face mask. Do you purchase more than what you need.
- Practice Social Distancing means that you shouldn’t allow anyone touch you or stay close to you. No handshakes. No Hugs. No Touching. You don’t know where they’ve been.
Follow Guidelines, you’ll be okay. If you have questions, ask WHO WhatsApp Support.
