To prevent infection and to slow transmission of COVID-19, do the following: Get vaccinated when a vaccine is available to you. Stay at least 1 metre apart from others, even if they don't appear to be sick. Wear a properly fitted mask when physical distancing is not possible or when in poorly ventilated settings. Choose open, well-ventilated spaces over closed ones. Open a window if indoors. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or clean them with alcohol-based hand rub. Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing. If you feel unwell, stay home and self-isolate until you recover.
