People in Wales reminded how they can help stop the spread of respiratory infections

As schools prepare to return, Public Health Wales are supporting the Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Chris Jones, in reminding people to stay at home and avoid contact with others if they are unwell and have a high temperature.

Respiratory infections, like flu and COVID-19, can spread easily between people, with symptoms ranging from a continuous cough, fever or chills, muscle aches or pains that are not due to exercise, a sore throat, stuffy or runny nose, diarrhoea and sickness.

COVID-19 has not gone away and continues to evolve and mutate.

The autumn vaccination programme for Wales starts on 11 September. Vaccinations are to be rolled out to over 65s, at risk groups and those working or living with vulnerable people for flu and COVID-19.
