– Wear a facemask (if advised): Some people will be supplied with face masks if they are at risk of infection, which they should wear around infected people. People should dispose of used masks in household waste.
– Do not invite visitors: Do not invite friends or family into an infected home, as they could spread the disease on exit.
– Keep away from vulnerable individuals: Chronically sick, older people (65 or over), and those with a weakened immune system should take extra care not to come into contact with infected people, considering alternative accommodation if necessary.
– Avoid sharing items: People should not share household items (utensils, drinking cups, bedding) with those suspected of having a COVID-19 infection.
