Behaviour when Coughing and Sneezing

  • You have to cough or sneeze? Keep a distance from other people (at least 1 metre) or turn away.
  • It is best to sneeze or cough into a disposable handkerchief and then dispose of it in a trash can with lid.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing.
  • If no handkerchief is handy, sneeze or cough in the crook of your arm, turning away from other people.
