10. How can you isolate yourself if you have other household members such as family at home?

If space permits, you should isolate yourself from the rest of the household in a separate room on your own. Use shared spaces i.e. bathroom and kitchen as little as possible, and for brief a period of time as possible. Any surfaces that you come into contact with should be cleaned with disinfectant or warm soapy water for at least one minute by other household members wearing gloves.

At all times, you should maintain a distance of 2 metres from other household members.
