A3 Poster. Stop Coronavirus Spreading
Coronavirus is spread from person to person. It is spread by people coughing/ sneezing on someone else.
If someone sneezes or coughs onto a surface…Coronavirus can live on that surface until that surface is cleaned. If someone touches that surface …and then touches their face, then they can get coronavirus.
We need to always cover our cough and sneeze. Wash hands regularly and avoid touching the face. We must keep our distance from other people, so no shaking hands and staying at least 2 big steps away from others is something we all must do.
