COVID-19 Education for African Students

3. Keeping safe in groups

The coronavirus spreads easily between people in closed spaces such as classrooms, particularly where people are talking loudly, laughing or standing close together.

There are some easy steps to reduce the spread of coronavirus

  • Stay at home if you are feeling unwell or have lost your sense of taste or smell
  • Keep your distance - (stay at least 1 metre apart from others)
  • Wear a mask if indoors with others or in groups outside where you can't keep your distance
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or with a hand sanitizer
  • Cover sneezes and coughs with a bent elbow or tissue. Remember to put used tissues in a closed bin
  • Meet outside wherever possible
  • Keep up to date with information about Covid-19
  • Remember to check local regulations about what is currently permitted.

By keeping ourselves safe we keep our friends and our communities safe.
