General hygiene

Coming into cold-season, you’re bound to be exposed to opportunistic viruses


The basics of hygiene might be the difference between a great week and a rough trot.

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, particularly after touching your nose and mouth
  • Always wash hands before handling food
  • Sneeze and cough into tissues and immediately throw them away
  • Clean surfaces around you, including keyboards, telephones and door handles
  • Avoid sharing cups, plates and cutlery
  • Store, handle and cook food appropriately

Always looking after you, Epworth Emergency 24/7.
