  • get vaccinated to help protect yourself and others from becoming seriously ill
  • let fresh air in when you meet others indoors
  • consider wearing a face covering in crowded or enclosed spaces
  • stay at home if you have symptoms of a respiratory infection and you have a high temperature or do not feel well enough to go to work or carry out normal activities
