HOW CAN I PROTECT MYSELF FROM INFECTION?

  • Wash your hands
    Hands should be washed with soap under running water, hand disinfectants should be used if needed.
  • Wear a mask 
    Anyone who is aged at least twelve years and upwards is required to wear a mask on all public premises.
  • Observe good respiratory hygiene
    If you sneeze or cough, cover your nose and mouth with a single use tissue. Throw it into the bin immediately after, and then clean your hands. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (the inside of your elbow), but do not use your bare hand. 
  • Requirement for dispersal
    The requirement for dispersal mandates that indoors strangers must be kept at a reasonable distance for the purpose of containing the spread of the virus.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • COVID-19 vaccination
    By vaccinating against COVID-19 we can move towards returning to the regular order of life.
