Prevent infection

Even if you are not ill yourself, it is important that you help prevent the spread of infection in society. That way we can protect ourselves and each other.

The most important elements in preventing the spread of infection are:

  1. Isolation of those infected with novel coronavirus to break the chains of infection through screening, testing and effective tracing of close contacts.
  2. Reduction of droplet spread, focusing on face-to-face contact, cough etiquette, social distancing, number, frequency, ventilation and use of physical barriers.
  3. Reduction of contact spread, focusing on hand hygiene and thorough and frequent cleaning of contact points.
