Staying clean is the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We recommend you always carry hand sanitiser with you, as well as antibacterial wipes or a spray for your equipment.
The current UK Government advice (June 2020) is that the public should wear face coverings while on public transport, hospitals. If you can, you should also where them in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn't possible.
You can use:
- A scarf or a bandana that ties behind a head - must cover your nose and mouth
- Make one out of a t-shirt - see the Government guide here
- Buy one and apply for a refund from Stuart - details here or click link below
Social distancing (keeping 2m distance) and regular hand washing or hand sanitising are still the most important actions to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.
What do face coverings do?
Evidence suggests that wearing a face covering does not protect you. However, if you are infected but have not yet developed symptoms, it may provide some protection for others you come into close contact with.
How do I use a face covering safely?
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser before putting a face covering on, and after removing it
- When wearing a face covering, avoid touching your face or face covering, as this could contaminate them with germs from your hands
- Change your face covering if it becomes damp or if you’ve touched it
