There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus.

There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • washing your hands often - with soap and water, or use alcohol sanitiser if hand washing facilities are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport

  • covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it

  • people who feel unwell should stay at home and should not attend work or any education or childcare setting

  • pupils, students, staff and visitors should wash their hands:

    • before leaving home

    • on arrival at school

    • after using the toilet

    • after breaks and sporting activities

    • before food preparation

    • before eating any food, including snacks

    • before leaving school

  • use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available

  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • avoid close contact with people who are unwell

  • clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

  • if you are worried about your symptoms or those of a child or colleague, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment

  • see further information on the Public Health England Blog and the NHS UK website

PHE has a suite of materials that contains public health advice about how you can help stop the spread of viruses, like those that cause COVID-19, by practicing good respiratory and hand hygiene.
