Message from the Health Board:
The Health Board reminds everyone that hand hygiene, social distancing and staying home when sick are still important measures to follow. The coronavirus is spread mainly from person-to-person, usually via close contact with an infected person. Close contact is seen as a situation where people are closer than 2 metres to each other for the duration of 15 minutes.
COVID-19 is a droplet infection caused by SARS-CoV-2 that spreads through sneezing and coughing from people to people, and by way of contaminated surfaces and unwashed hands.
