Preventing the spread of coronavirus can be more difficult when you’re living in close proximity to others. If you develop coronavirus symptoms, or someone you live with does, you must all self-isolate for 10 days and follow this advice to prevent those you live with catching the virus.

  • Stay 2 metres apart from people you live with, especially if they are clinically extremely vulnerable, e.g. avoid using shared areas at the same time.
  • Wear a face covering in shared areas, unless exempt.
  • Regularly clean your home. Take extra care to clean frequently touched surfaces, e.g. door handles and toilet flush.
  • Wash your hands more regularly, particularly after sneezing, coughing or blowing your nose. Do not share towels.
  • Keep your home well-ventilated, e.g. open windows.
  • Keep an eye on anyone who’s got symptoms. If you’re worried, call the NHS for free on 111. In an emergency, phone 999.
