There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus.
There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
•    washing your hands often - with soap and water, or use alcohol sanitiser if handwashing facilities are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport
•    covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it
•    people who feel unwell should stay at home and should not attend work or any education or childcare setting
•    pupils, students, staff and visitors should wash their hands:
•    before leaving home
•    on arrival at school
•    after using the toilet
•    after breaks and sporting activities
•    before food preparation
•    before eating any food, including snacks
•    before leaving school
•    use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser if soap and water are not available
•    avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
•    avoid close contact with people who are unwell
•    clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
•    if you are worried about your symptoms or those of a child or colleague, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment
