How COVID-19 spreads

When someone who has COVID-19 coughs or exhales they release droplets of infected fluid. Most of these droplets fall on nearby surfaces and objects. People could catch COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces or objects – and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. If they are standing within one meter of a person with COVID-19 they can catch it by breathing in droplets coughed out or exhaled by them. In other words, COVID-19 spreads in a similar way to flu. Most persons infected with COVID-19 experience mild symptoms and recover. However, some go on to experience more serious illness and may require hospital care. Risk of serious illness are seen in people with weakened immune systems.

Social Distancing

What is social distancing and why is it important? Social distancing includes ways to stop or slow the spread of infectious diseases. It means less contact between you and other people.

 

Social distancing is important because COVID-19 is most likely to spread from person-to-person through:

 

  • Direct close contact with a person while they are infectious or in the 24 hours before their symptoms appeared
  • Close contact with a person with a confirmed infection who coughs or sneezes, or
  • Touching objects or surfaces (such as door handles or tables) contaminated from a cough or sneeze from a person with a confirmed infection, and then touching your mouth or face. So, the more space between you and others, the harder it is for the virus to spread. What can I do?

If you are sick, stay away from others –that is the most important thing you can do.

Please contact our 24 hour text line if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms:

You should also practice good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet · Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • If unwell, avoid contact with others (stay more than 1.5 meters from people). As well as these, you can start a range of social distancing and low cost hygiene actions now. These simple, common sense actions help reduce risk to you and to others. They will help to slow the spread of disease in the community – and you can use them every day – in your home, workplace, school and while out in public.

Social distancing in the workplace

 To reduce the spread of germs in the workplace:

  • Stay at home if you are sick
  • Stop handshaking as a greeting
  • Hold meetings via video conferencing or phone call
  • Defer large meetings
  • Hold essential meetings outside in the open air if possible
  • Promote good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene and provide hand sanitizers for all staff and workers
  • Take lunch at your desk or outside rather than in the lunch room
  • Clean and disinfect high touch surfaces regularly
  • Consider opening windows and adjusting air conditioning for more ventilation
  • Limit food handling and sharing of food in the workplace
  • Reconsider non-essential business travel
  • Promote strictest hygiene among food preparation (canteen) staff and their close contacts
  • Consider if large gatherings can be rescheduled, staggered or cancelled

 

We will keep all employees informed and updated with the latest updates and changes.
