- Place used tissues in a bin as soon as possible
- Ensure everyone washes their hands regularly with soap and water
- Clean surfaces regularly to get rid of germs
- If you think you have influenza, please avoid close contact with others, stay at home and seek medical advice by phoning your GP.
There is currently no restriction on national or international travel. However, any person who suspects that they have influenza should not travel if they feel unwell or until they have become non-infectious. Always refer to the websites referred to above for further information. If you are travelling abroad ensure that you are aware of the local influenza response protocols and in particular what to do if you develop symptoms.
