One of the best ways to protect public health is to follow good hygiene and sanitation practices as outlined in Sandec publications. The new coronavirus spreads primarily directly from person to person when they cough, sneeze, or speak. Indirect transmission can occur by touching surfaces with your hands, and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth. These are the main pathways of transmission, not safely contained onsite sanitation, wastewater, drinking water, or solid waste. It is important to wash your hands regularly, clean and sterilise surfaces, and provide physical distancing as much as possible, especially when people share sanitation services or gather to access these services. The factsheet provides resources that address frequently asked questions.
