Preventive Actions to Protect Yourself and Others

Avoid contact with people who are sick, especially if they are coughing and sneezing

wash hands.JPG

Frequently clean your hands using the correct handwashing technique using the WHO technique with soap and water (for at least 20 seconds) and dry hands thoroughly, preferably using a disposable paper towel. In addition (or where hand washing facilities are not available) sanitize hands using an alcohol-based hand rub. The use of gloves is NOT a substitute for correct hand hygiene/washing

 

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth

 

Clean and sanitize frequently touched objects and surfaces

 

Alcohol based hand gel/rub should be made available in addition to soap/water/towels as a final step in hand hygiene/washing NOT as a replacement for handwashing

 

Protect the health of your staff and customers by restricting all non-essential business travel. This will help avoid the transmission of infection and reduce the possibility of employees or contractors from becoming stranded or quarantined as a result of business travel
