    Encouraging good hygiene

    As always, if you have symptoms of a cold or flu, then there are measures you can take to stop germs:

    ·         always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

    ·         wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

    ·         avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

    ·         avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
