As a reminder, the measures that are most effective in preventing the transmission of germs are :
- Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or hand sanitizer
- Cough and sneeze into a tissue or, if not available, into the crook of the elbow
- Avoid unnecessary contact with people with respiratory conditions or coughs
We have made hand sanitizer available at the reception desk and in our offices.
