To help prevent the potential spread of any infections, including Covid-19, Public Health England has launched the Catch it, Bin it, Kill It campaign. Using a tissue to catch a sneeze, binning the tissue and washing your hands is the best way to stop the spread of any germs or viruses. We would ask all parents, carers and their children to follow this good hygiene to stop the spread of germs.
