People in the risk group:

  • People aged 65+
  • People suffering from chronic lung diseases (including asthma), diabetes, liver diseases, kidney diseases (including renal failure), cardiovascular diseases and immune deficiency regardless of age.

Preventative measures

  • Stay at home when sick!
  • Keep a distance and spread out the groups, if possible!
  • Don’t be closer than 2 metres to a stranger for more than 15 minutes! If that is not possible, consider wearing a mask!
  • Keep your circle of communication as tight as possible, meeting different groups increases the risk of infection!
  • Wash your hands often as the disease also spreads by way of unwashed hands!
  • If washing hands is not possible, use disinfectants!
  • Cover your mouth with a disposable tissue when coughing or sneezing, throw it away immediately after use and wash your hands right away!

A mask is an additional preventative measure

  • Recommended in crowded indoor spaces, in public transport, in shopping centres etc.
  • When coming into contact with people who are 65+ or belong to a risk group.
  • Wearing a mask is not recommended to children under the age of ten.
  • Wear it in healthcare and social care facilities, basing yourself on the internal procedure rules of the institutions.


Wear a mask correctly - it must cover your nose and mouth

  • Disposable masks have to be changed out and thrown away when they get damp, and hands must be washed or cleaned right after.
  • A cloth mask must be washed after every use.

When planning meetings:

  • Prefer outdoor events and activities.
  • Consider that risk groups are in a bigger danger in closed indoor spaces.
  • Children are less at risk from the virus and there are fewer restrictions to their group activities.
  • We ask that you follow the Health Board guidelines when organizing events.
