    • Preparing infant formula and cereal
    • Washing fruit/vegetables
    • Cooking
    • Making Ice
    • Making coffee/tea/hot drinks
    • Making juices and other drinks from concentrates or powders
  • It is not necessary to boil water for laundry or bathing/showering for adults and older children. However, it is recommended that infants/toddlers are sponge-bathed.

 

It is recommended that residents refrain from doing laundry for approximately one hour after the water has been restored to avoid the possibility of clothes being soiled or stained by discoloured water.
