Everyone is being reminded to follow Public health England advice to:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue and wash your hands or use a sanitiser gel.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. use a santiser gel if soap and water are not available
