  • Personal hygiene
  • Wash hands frequently.
  • Wash hands with soap for 20 seconds prior to eating or entering common area spaces. Hand sanitiser is recommended if washing with soap is not available.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands or gloves.
  • If you or a family member test positive, or you suspect that you may have become exposed, let your supervisor know and seek advice on how to proceed. Sub-clinical infections play a role at spreading the virus.
