 Preventing the spread of Infection

As with the flu and common cold, the best way to help prevent infection is to maintain good hand and face hygiene; wash hands regularly (alcohol gel can be used if hands aren’t visibly soiled), and cough and sneeze into the crook of your elbow or a tissue which is then thrown away. Where possible, avoid contact with people with flu like symptoms.
