    Hi and welcome,

    There's plenty of advice for what to do and what not to do on the internet. This is a good advice link. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

    Wash your hands regularly and properly (link provided for best practice).

    This will at least reduce his chances of getting the virus :)
    The guide above has images which are easier to follow than some of the instruction I've read so far.

    Hope this helps

    Only you can make the decision. If you have hand santiser put some by the entrance and ask them to use it when they enter.

    Hand sanitser is a good idea @poppy123456
    I think hugs at a 40th are unavoidable but maybe tell him avoid the kisses from well wishers ;)

    So long as he (and hopefully your guests) use common sense you should be ok.
    Is it at home or in a hired venue?
    Either way, maybe signs in the bathroom about proper handwashing techniques would be a good idea. 

    I'd also advise avoiding finger food if possible.
    Limit food touching hands directly to lower the chances of transferring viruses.

    Gosh, it's a tough one. How do you Coronavirus-proof a big party? o.O

    Thanks it just a terrible worry we were told when he was 8 that he wouldn’t live longer than 18 so this is a big achievement for him  we are already getting guests cancelling one which is his 91 year old grand father who is scared to go which is sad for him but once again I thank you for all your replies if anybody thinks of anything else I can do please email
