Basic hygiene measures are the most important way to stop the spread of infections, including the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Basic hygiene measures include:
- hand hygiene – that is, washing hands regularly with soap and water, or cleansing with hand sanitiser
- staying at home if you are sick
- coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow and then performing hand hygiene
- cleaning surfaces regularly.
There is good advice by the health department to wipe clean with anti-bacterial wipes items received when purchasing online as these items pass through many hands. At Baron and Buxton our packaging takes place away from all other staff except the person packaging the goods. Although everything is done to ensure your item arrives in a sanitary condition, we still recommend, like all other items that touch your hands, that you sanitize all surfaces of goods you receive or buy.
