Basic Care



Maintaining Good Hygiene

  1. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, pay special attention to your fingertips, between the fingers and dry your hands with a disposable paper towel.
  2. Remember to cough and sneeze into your sleeve or a tissue and then throw away the tissue and wash your hands, or use a sanitizer gel.
  3. Regularly disinfect your hands, surfaces and objects, such as desks and shared areas.

Social Distancing and Self Isolation

Social distancing refers to physically distancing yourself from other people and involves:
  • Interacting with as few people as possible.
  • Try to avoid getting too close (i.e. nearer than 2 metres).
Self-isolation is the strictest form of social distancing and should be applied if:
  • you have flu-like symptoms (immediately consult your health care provider and follow their directions and advise your company). 
  • have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • have returned home from another country.
  • have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with the illness.
