Managing your risk of exposure to the Coronavirus is essential to maintaining good health. At this time, please be aware of good hygiene and using common sense in your everyday activities in order to prevent the spread of this virus.
We recommend regularly washing your hands with soap and water or an alcohol based hand sanitiser; practice safe sneeze and cough hygiene; avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes with unwashed hands; avoid close contact with people who are sick; and disinfect and clean “often touched” objects and surfaces to help reduce your risk of exposure.
We will continue to monitor this issue and provide updates as needed.
