“These are the tools we are all so familiar with,” he said, “washing hands, covering coughs, wearing masks, choosing outdoor or well-ventilated indoor activities where possible and maintaining a social distance.

“If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 do not meet up with others at school, work or socially – including in your own home. Self-isolate immediately and arrange a test.”

 If you socialise, be mindful of your contacts in the days after, especially consider anyone you may meet who may be immunocompromised or vulnerable to Covid-19.
