cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing,
do not share eating utensils,
ensure that toys or appliances that are contaminated by nasal or oral secretions should be cleaned before they are used again.

6.the person must keep him home from school, kindergarten or childcare centre, keep him away from all public places including restaurants, playgrounds and shopping centres,look out for signs and symptoms in other family members, both children and the adults,keep his toys, books, eating utensils, towels and clothes separate from others, inform the school, kindergarten or childcare centre as soon as possible,they can monitor other children closely and take additional precautions to prevent the spread of HFMD, children with HFMD should remain at home until all the blisters have dried up,consult your doctor before sending him back to the school, kindergarten or childcare centre.
