COVID-19 – Protect our most vulnerable
People of all ages can be infected by the new coronavirus (COVID-19). People with pre-existing medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease) and older people are more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus. At present, there have been no deaths in anyone aged under 34 years of age. It is important we protect the ‘at risk’ members of our community by:
- Ensuring we maintain good respiratory and hand hygiene. Catch it, Bin it, Kill it.
- Taking advantage of relevant vaccinations (such as the flu or pneumococcal vaccines) to prevent contracting and spreading infections.
