  • Clean then sanitise surfaces, such as tabletops, door knobs and cell phones;
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based sanitiser;
  • Cough into a tissue or into the crook of your elbow;
  • Avoid touching your face.

  1. There is likely to be a much bigger spike in the weeks ahead. I see stupid people without masks piling together in Political motorcade truck trays, 15-20 at a time. Why do we continue to be so selfish in this country.
    Lots of people seem to only be concerned with themselves doing as they wish. If others die as a result, so be it, not their concern. Even putting elderly persons in their family at risk.
