How can we prevent the spread of viruses?

The usual precautions for viruses apply for preventing spread of infection. They include:

  • Wash your hands frequently using soap and water for at least 20 seconds; and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
  • Coronavirus is most contagious while an individual is exhibiting symptoms. It is crucial that employees be sent home or refrain from coming into work if they have any symptoms of the virus.
