Safe socialising during the epidemic

Social distancing is essential to stop the spread of the virus, as it is more likely to spread when people are close together. So how do we stay safe when we want to see other people, particularly during autumn and winter?

Currently, the number of people infected with novel coronavirus is increasing, so we must all do our best to help reduce the spread of infection. 

To reduce your risk of getting or spreading novel coronavirus, you must therefore limit your social circle – both in terms of how many people you get together with in person, how much time you sped together and how many different people you see. In addition to those you live with, you must therefore stick to a small circle of friends of 10. Keep in touch with the friends you do not see so often by calling, writing or texting.

Please comply with the current bans on hosting and attending indoor and outdoor events, activities, etc., follow the general guidance on how to prevent the spread of infection, and:

  • Stay home if you have symptoms of COVID-19, have tested positive or is the close contact of someone who is infected with novel coronavirus. 
  • Keep a distance of at least 1 metre to others, and at least 2 metres to someone who is at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, and in situations where there is an increased risk of droplet spread, for example in connection with singing, shouting or physical exertion. 
  • Meet people outdoors and go for a walk instead of meeting at home. 
  • Refrain from kissing, hugging or shaking hands when you greet others.
  • Cough or sneeze into your sleeve and pay particular attention to good hand hygiene.

By following this guidance, we can avoid the spread of infection and maintin a relatively normal daily routine of going to work and to school.

Self-isolate immediately if you have symptoms of COVID-19. If you are hosting an event, ask your guests to stay home if they have symptoms. 

And remember to wear a face mask where it is recommended or mandatory to do so, for example when travelling by public transport, in sit-down restaurants, etc.
