Coronavirus is highly infectious; it can be spread by droplet and mist inhalation. This means you can pick it up by simply talking to someone.

***THE 6 FOOT RULE IS A MINIMUM***

Coronavirus is highly infectious, there is no cure and unless its progress is halted it will overwhelm the NHS.

In order to protect the most vulnerable in our community we are all responsible for maintaining social distance.
