  • washing your hands often – with soap and water. This is particularly important after taking public transport
  • covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin.
  • pupils who feel unwell with symptoms such as cough, difficulty in breathing, fever should stay at home and should not attend school.
  • pupils, students, staff and visitors should wash their hands:
    • before leaving home
    • on arrival at school
    • after using the toilet
    • after breaks and sporting activities
    • before food preparation
    • before eating any food, including snacks
    • before leaving school
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • if you are worried about your symptoms or those of a child or colleague, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment
