Why must we keep apart from each other?
COVID-19 spreads mainly when we breathe in small droplets produced when someone with COVID-19 breathes, coughs, sneezes, sings, talks or shouts.
Keep apart from others to allow less chance for coronavirus to spread.
- This will help protect those at risk of severe COVID-19 – those over 55 years or with diabetes, HIV, TB, kidney disease, hypertension, chronic lung disease or cancer.
- It will also mean less stress on our clinics and hospitals so that those who need healthcare can still get it.
How do we keep apart from each other?
Keep at least 1,5 metres apart from people.
Only visit public spaces and use public transport when necessary.
Avoid crowds, close contact and confined spaces.
