      Follow the government and NHS advice – latest advice is here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

      Avoiding catching coronavirus is mainly based on regularly washing your hands, coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow (covering your nose and mouth), and social distancing – sick people staying at home, and people avoiding large gatherings of crowded places. But the advice is changing rapidly, so please check the latest NHS advice.

      Please try not to worry or panic about it though.
