What can I do to minimise the risk of infection?

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Maintain at least 1 metre distance between yourself and others. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unclean hands.

Dear community care hero, I am in awe of how brave you are. Especially if you have children at home. To me the scariest thing about this epidemic is the possibility that I might leave my children behind without a mother. If you are facing this fear, but still putting yourself at risk for others, thank you for showing us what humanity can aspire to be. With thanks and love.
