How you can help stop the spread of infection?

It’s very important that everyone remembers the simple ways to avoid spreading flu around – now more than ever, as the level of flu is now much higher than our usual seasonal flu levels for wintertime.

Catch it, Bin it, Kill it – it is more important than ever to put it into practice.

  • Avoid close contact with people who appear unwell and have fever and cough
  • Always carry tissues
  • Always cover your nose and mouth with clean tissues, when coughing or sneezing – CATCH IT
  • Always dispose of used tissues into a bin immediately – BIN IT
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water or alcohol based hand cleaners regularly – KILL IT
