- fever OR chills (with no alternative illness that explains these symptoms)

Practising good hygiene is the first step in preventing the spread of infectious diseases.
- Wash your hands often with soap and running water, for at least 20 seconds. Dry them with paper towel or a hand dryer. Alternatively use alcohol based hand sanitisers.
- Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow.
- Stay home if you’re unwell to avoid making others sick.
Physical distancing (or social distancing) means avoiding close contact and crowded places wherever you can. You should:
- keep at least 1.5 metres distance from others wherever and whenever possible
- avoid hugging and kissing
- swap handshakes for a wave
- turn face to face interactions into phone or video conference calls
- consider working from home
- pay using tap-and-go instead of cash.
