How to protect yourself

The virus does not spread on its own. People who have the virus are the ones who spread it. Therefore, the following measures can help you protect yourself (and others) from the virus:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
  • Cough or sneeze in your elbow;
  • Use single-use tissues and throw them into the bin;
  • Do not shake hands or greet people with kisses on the cheek.
  • Wear your mask.
