People are now asked to stay at home and self-isolate if they develop symptoms of fever or cough that might incline towards being infected by COVID-19. If you have been exposed, it may take up to two weeks for symptoms to present. To keep yourself and others safe, you should isolate yourself from other people.

Self-isolation means staying indoors and completely avoiding contact with other people. Here below we have some pointers that will help to self-isolate yourself in case of need.

>Stay at home, in a room with the window open.

>Not go to work, school or public areas. You should not go outside for a walk. You can use your garden as long as you remain two meters apart from other people.

>Cover your coughs and sneezes using a tissue - clean your hands properly afterwards.

>Wash your hands properly and often

>Use your own towel - do not share a towel with others.

>Clean your room every day with a household cleaner or disinfectant.

>Stay in a room with a window you can open. If you can, use a toilet and bathroom that no one else in the house uses. If you have to share a bathroom with others, use the bathroom last and then clean it thoroughly.

>Do not share any items you’ve used with other people.
