Wash your hands frequently

Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub if your hands are not visibly dirty.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub eliminates the virus if it is on your hands. 

Practice respiratory hygiene

When coughing and  sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard  tissue immediately into a closed bin and clean your hands with  alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.

Why? Covering your mouth  and nose when coughing and sneezing prevent the spread of germs and  viruses. If you sneeze or cough into your hands, you may contaminate  objects or people that you touch.

Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre  (3 feet) distance between yourself and other people, particularly those  who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever.

Why? When someone who is infected with a respiratory disease, like  2019-nCoV, coughs or sneezes they project small droplets containing the  virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the virus.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Why? Hands  touch many surfaces which can be contaminated with the virus. If you  touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can  transfer the virus from the surface to yourself. 

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

Tell  your health care provider if you have traveled in an area in China  where 2019-nCoV has been reported, or if you have been in close contact  with someone with who has traveled from China and has respiratory  symptoms.

Why? Whenever you have fever, cough and  difficulty breathing it’s important to seek medical attention promptly  as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious  condition. Respiratory symptoms with fever can have a range of causes,  and depending on your personal travel history and circumstances,  2019-nCoV could be one of them.

If you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel history to or within China

If  you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel history to or within  China, carefully practice basic respiratory and hand hygiene and stay  home until you are recovered, if possible.

As a general precaution, practice general hygiene measures  when visiting live animal markets, wet markets or animal product markets

Ensure  regular hand washing with soap and potable water after touching animals  and animal products; avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with hands; and  avoid contact with sick animals or spoiled animal products. Strictly  avoid any contact with other animals in the market (e.g., stray cats and  dogs, rodents, birds, bats). Avoid contact with potentially  contaminated animal waste or fluids on the soil or structures of shops  and market facilities.

Avoid consumption of raw or undercooked animal products

Handle  raw meat, milk or animal organs with care, to avoid cross-contamination  with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices.If customers can’t find it, it doesn’t exist. Clearly list and describe the services you offer. Also, be sure to showcase a premium service.
