#4 Develop good hygiene habits and follow social distancing!


We can slow the spread of COVID-19 by washing our hands frequently, covering our coughs, and putting tissues straight into a bin! And we can’t stress enough the importance of avoiding touching our face, it’s a major way people pick up infections and we need to break this habit.


Despite the uncertain situation our world is facing with COVID19, remember we are all in this together and we will come through this stronger together!
