Preventing The Spread of Coronavirus

The Department of Health has issued guidelines for preventing the spread of the Coronavirus (CoVid 19) which highlights the importance of cleanliness and hygiene. In particular, washing of hands for more than 20 seconds every time you meet, greet, eat, sneeze or use the toilet has been promoted as a way of reducing the spread of infection. This in and of itself will add significant time to the average day of a healthcare provider and cleaning and maintenance staff.
