Germs can live on some surfaces for hours. To protect yourself and others always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Bin the tissue and, to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water or use a sanitiser gel.
This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including COVID-19.
If you are worried, please ring NHS 111.
