12th March 2020

Preventive Measures:

It is important to wash your hands with soap frequently and to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or with the crook of your arm (elbow) if a tissue is unavailable, when coughing or sneezing to protect yourself and others from the virus, just as you do for the common cold or the flu. We strongly recommend everyday preventive actions to help keep the virus from spreading.
