While hand sanitiser is convenient, it is not essential to killing the virus.

Social distancing means keeping more than 2 metres apart from other people.

Contact should be avoided such as hand-shaking, hugging and kissing.

Gatherings, playdates, parties should all be stopped during the outbreak.

The World Health Organisation recommends that only those with confirmed COVID-19 or those caring for them should wear a surgical or N95 mask.

We do not sell surgical masks which are reserved for frontline healthcare workers.

We sell reusable face masks that can be washed.
