“With so many people attending the games and enjoying the celebrations taking place across the region, there is a high chance of spreading stomach bug infections, which can be spread through poor hand hygiene or infections including covid-19.

“In both cases, if you are sick, it is better to stay at home. Also, it’s a good idea to get up-to-date on your routine vaccinations, such as MMR, MenACWY, and COVID-19, before joining crowds.

“With the party atmosphere and the large number of people visiting the region, it is very important to practice safe sex to prevent sexually transmitted infections. So, remember to use a condom, and if you have unprotected sex, get tested for STDs.

“While STIs are not STIs, they can be transmitted through close physical contact, so watch for symptoms and contact a sexual health clinic if you suspect you have that or a sexually transmitted infection.”
