The risk assessments of the Health Board
under the conditions of reduced COVID-19 restrictions
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.
- 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.
