According to Peel Public Health, the best way to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses such as COVID-19 is to: · Stay home if you are ill. · Practice social distancing: reduce physical contact with others (of at least 2 metres apart) to break the pathways COVID-19 uses to move between people, such as shaking hands and direct contact. · Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. · Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose as much as possible. · Avoid contact with people who are ill and their items. · Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands. Wash hands after coughing and sneezing. · Maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a healthy diet, exercise and enough sleep, to enhance your body’s immune system. · Get a flu shot. You are more likely to contract influenza than COVID-19 and being sick lowers your immunity to other germs.
