  • ask friends, family and delivery services to deliver things like food shopping and medicines but leave them outside.
  • sleep alone, if possible.
  • regularly wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds
  • drink plenty of water and take paracetamol to help with your symptoms.

Dont':

  • do not have visitors to your home (ask people to leave deliveries outside).
  • do not leave your home, for example to go to work, school, or public areas, and do not use public transport or taxis.
  • If possible, you should not go out even to buy food or other essentials, other than exercise, and in that case at a safe distance from others.
