What can we do to reduce the spread of coronavirus?
The best thing we can all do is to wash our hands properly and regularly! When we get to school/home, after sporting activities or being outside, before lunch, after going to the toilet… Current government advice is that we wash our hands (and supervise young children to ensure they wash their hands) for 20 seconds, more often than usual and to use soap and water. Hand sanitiser can be used when soap and water is not available. All sneezes and coughs should be caught in a tissue and the tissue binned, then hands washed.
