GUIDELINES FOR FIGHTING THE THIRD WAVE

 

  1. Protect yourself and those around you:
  • Get vaccinated as soon as it’s your turn and follow local guidance on vaccination.
  • Keep a physical distance of at least 1 meter from others, even if they don’t appear to be sick. Avoid crowds and close contact.
  • Wear a properly fitted mask when physical distancing is not possible and in poorly ventilated settings.
  • Clean your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of used tissues immediately and clean hands regularly.
  • If you develop symptoms or test positive for COVID-19, self-isolate until you recover.

2.Wear a mask properly

To properly wear your mask:

  • Make sure your mask covers your nose, mouth, and chin.
  • Clean your hands before you put your mask on, before and after you take it off, and after you touch it at any time.
  • When you take off your mask, store it in a clean plastic bag, and every day either wash it if it’s a fabric mask or dispose of it in a trash bin if it’s a medical mask.
  • Don’t use masks with valves.

3. To make your environment as safe as possible:

  • Avoid the 3Cs: spaces that are closed, crowded or involve close contact.
  • Meet people outside. Outdoor gatherings are safer than indoor ones, particularly if indoor spaces are small and without outdoor air coming in.
  • If you can’t avoid crowded or indoor settings, take these precautions:
  • Open a window to increase the amount of natural ventilation when indoors.
  • Wear a mask (see above for more details).

4. To ensure good hygiene you should:

  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with either an alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water. This eliminates germs that may be on your hands, including viruses.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of the used tissue immediately into a closed bin and wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces frequently, especially those which are regularly touched, such as door handles, faucets and phone screens.
