If you are unwell with known Covid symptoms, please stay home and get a Covid test
All our staff and trainers are fully vaccinated against Covid-19
How it spreads
Like the flu, COVID-19 can be transmitted from person to person. The scientific evidence confirms that coronavirus is spread by droplets. This means that when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks, they may generate droplets containing the virus.
Droplet-spread diseases can be spread by coughing and sneezing, close personal contact and contact with an object or surface with viral particles on it and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes.
That’s why it’s really important to practice good hygiene, regularly wash and thoroughly dry your hands and practice good cough etiquette.
Prevention – how to protect yourself and others
You can take some simple steps to help stop the spread of diseases like COVID-19.
- Avoid close contact with people with cold or flu-like illnesses.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing.
- Wash hands for at least 20 seconds with water and soap and dry them thoroughly:
– before eating or handling food,
– after using the toilet,
– after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose or wiping children’s noses,
– after caring for sick people.
