Guidance for preventing infection

Oxfordshire’s Local Authorities have put together ADVICE FOR CONTROLLING COVID-19 INFECTION

“Communities, third sector organisations and small businesses have an essential role to play in supporting more vulnerable people but want to make sure that all those involved clearly understand how to keep themselves and others safe. This guidance pulls together published government advice to help support people wanting
to work or volunteer with practical advice on infection control measures to minimise the risk of person to person spread of COVID-19.

Because it’s a new illness, we do not know exactly how coronavirus spreads from person to person. Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets. It’s very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food. Your local district council Environmental Health Department can provide advice on safe food handling and preparation.”
