Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new respiratory illness that has not previously been seen in humans. 

We are asking people to take simple, common-sense steps to avoid close contact with other people as much as possible, like they would with other flu viruses.

Where possible, you should avoid having visitors to your home, but it’s ok for friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food.
