Health Board: sick people need to stay home
The Health Board reminds everyone that even after the end of the emergency situation, vigilance towards COVID-19 as well as other infectious diseases should stay high: hand hygiene, social distancing and staying home when sick are still important measures to follow. The coronavirus is spread mainly from person-to-person, usually via close contact with an infected person. Close contact is seen as a situation where people are closer than two meters to each other for 15 minutes.
COVID-19 is a droplet infection caused by SARS-CoV-2 that spreads through sneezing and coughing from people to people and by way of contaminated surfaces and unwashed hands.
