​• Individuals should place all personal waste such as used tests, tissues, gloves, paper towels, wipes, and masks securely in a plastic bag or bin liner;
• Bag should be filled no fuller than 80% so that it can be tied securely without spillage;
• This plastic bag should then be placed in another plastic bag and securely tied;
• These bags must be disposed of in your red lidded garbage bin.
