Health Advice for Patients with Respiratory Tract Infections
 
  • Even if you don't have a fever, if you have developed respiratory symptoms, you should consult a doctor (e.g. University Health Service).
  • Sick persons should follow instructions given by their doctor, including the use of drug prescriptions and taking adequate rest.
  • Adhere to good personal hygiene practices.
  • Patients should put on masks to reduce the chance of spreading the infection to other persons around you.
  • Persons caring for you should also put on masks to reduce the chance of acquiring infection through the airways.
  • Based on severity of symptoms, take sick leave as appropriate. If you have only mild respiratory symptoms e.g. cough, but is otherwise fit for work, you should put on a surgical mask at work.
  • Follow the good hygiene practices and the guidelines issued by the Centre for Health Protection, Department of Health.
