Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.  • Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.  More information can be found on the NHS website here  Information for the public is available at gov.uk/coronavirus
