HYGIENE MEASURES AND RECOMMENDED PRECAUTIONS

To avoid spreading the Covid-19 virus, it is recommended that a few basic, easy-to-apply protective measures be followed:

  • maintain a social distance (avoid greeting people with a kiss or shaking hands)
  • wash your hands frequently with soap or disinfect them with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • cough or sneeze into a paper handkerchief and throw it away after use (then wash or disinfect your hands afterwards) or into the crook of your elbow if you don’t have a tissue.

People who have travelled in risk areas are asked to remain vigilant about any eventual symptoms. It is advisable to check your temperature 2 times a day. It is necessary to self-quarantine if you have been in contact with someone who is already infected by the virus.

If you have a fever or feel feverish, have a cough or breathing difficulties:

  • do not immediately go to the doctor’s or to the emergency department at the hospital; quickly contact the SAMU on 15 (French emergency medical services) indicating your recent journey or 112.
  • You can contact the information line of the ministry on 0800 130 000 (free call).
