Stop the spread of the coronavirus
Go outside only when necessary. For example, for shopping, or for a breath of fresh air. If possible, avoid going out with more than 3 people.
Work at home if possible. Keep 1.5 meters away from others (2 arm lengths). Also on the street, in the supermarket, and in the park, keep the same distance.
Wash your hands with soap and water several times a day. Avoid touching your hand with unwashed hands.
Ensure good hygiene measures: Wash your hands 20 seconds with soap and water, then dry hands thoroughly Before you go out, when you come back home, when you’ve blown your nose, of course before dinner and after you’ve gone to the bathroom. Cough and sneeze in the inside of your elbow Use tissue paper to blow your nose and then throw it away Then wash your hands Do not shake hands Keep 1.5 meters (2 arm lengths) from others This applies to everyone, for example on the street, in shops, with colleagues, except at home and within the family / household. Keeping 1.5 meters away reduces the chance that people will infect each other.
Can I get sick from the new coronavirus if I touch or grab things or surfaces somewhere?
You are unlikely to get sick if you touch or grip items or surfaces, such as mail, packages or a bunch of flowers. The chance is even smaller if you wash your hands regularly and it prevents you from getting your hands on the face after touching them. If you know the owner of the stuff is sick, wash your hands as soon as there is an opportunity.
