Alongside the measures Icon is taking in line with the Ministry of Health guidelines to ensure the safety of our patients, here are some general steps people can take to help protect from infections such as COVID-19.
Observe good personal hygiene and wash hands regularly
Most infections travel through the oral route. It is important to practice good hand hygiene and always wash your hands before every meal and make sure you wash your hands with soap and water for about 20 seconds and sufficiently dry them. If you don’t have access to fresh water, carry around a hand sanitiser that contains high alcohol content. Also try to avoid touching your face frequently, particularly with unclean hands.
