How can we all help prevent the spread of the virus?
Practising good hand and general hygiene is the best defence against the spread of the virus.
* Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol based hand sanitiser if your hands are not visibly dirty. Do this before handling food, before eating, as well as after using the toilet. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
* Avoid close contact with others.
* Cough and sneeze into your elbow or directly into a tissue and throw the tissue in a bin.

I ask that students be kept home if they are ill as a general rule.

Kind regards,

Rachel Matthews
