How can I protect myself from getting Infected?

If you are healthy, the use of a medical face mask when visiting busy, closed places reduces the spread of the infection in the community. Always follow local recommendations regarding the use of masks in public spaces.

  • Avoid touching your face
    The virus can enter your body via your eyes, nose and/or mouth, so it is important to avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands
    Frequent washing of hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or cleaning hands thoroughly with alcohol-based solutions, gels or tissues is recommended in all settings.
  • Stay away from infected persons
    Avoid having close contacts with people infected with COVID-19.
  • Avoid social gatherings
    Avoid physical meetings, events and other social gatherings in areas with ongoing community transmission and follow local recommendations applicable to mass gatherings.
  • Use a face mask
    Wear a face mask indoors and outdoors whenever physical distancing with other people cannot be guaranteed.
