Coronavirus (COVID-19)​

Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

Self Isolation

This is a form of isolation to prevent the spread of disease and involves staying at home or another location. The government has asked everyone to stay at home even if you don’t have any symptoms. This will reduce the spread of Covid-19.

Social distancing​

Simple! Staying further away from people. It can mean simply standing further away from people, but also includes avoiding busy places, such as restaurants shopping centres.
