How to reduce covid-19 from spreading.

At the time of writing this notice, several cities are in lockdown because of the number of cases reported in the UK and more cases are still being reported. However, as with any other virus, the best way to prevent infection from spreading is to avoid being exposed to it. You can help to prevent the spread of any respiratory outbreak by doing the following:
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Always wash your hands when you get home or into work.
  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the bin straight away, or sneeze into the bend of your elbow, then wash your hands.
  • Avoid close contact with persons who have respiratory illness symptoms.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • If you are unwell, stay at home and contact the 111 Coronavirus helpline (valid in all countries of the UK).
  • If you are asked to self-isolate please follow the NHS Advice.
  • If a member of staff has a positive confirmed diagnosis of Coronavirus the local Bluebird Care office will prepare a list of all customers and staff the affected person has been in contact with for at least the preceding 14 days and report this to the 111 Coronavirus helpline.
