How to avoid getting sick at the office

Once someone in the office goes down with a cold or influenza, or the winter vomiting norovirus, the infection can spread very quickly to others.  We tend to accept this as inevitable, but by understanding how these viruses spread, and following common sense hygiene measures, we can do a lot to reduce the risks of these infections spreading.

This advice sheet has been produced for those who work in healthcare professions, the media, those with responsibility for giving guidance to the public, and for the public themselves on how to reduce the risks of spread of infections such as colds, flu and the winter vomiting norovirus in the office environment.
