The COVID-19 infection can be spread from one person to another by tiny particles called aerosols and by respiratory droplets expelled through the nose or mouth when an infected person coughs or sneezes. In order to avoid inhaling these particles, it is important to keep a distance of more than 2 metres from an infected person and apply the basic rules of hygiene.
The droplets can also persist for a certain amount of time on objects and surfaces, and the COVID-19 disease can also be contracted by touching these objects or surfaces and then touching the eyes, nose or mouth.
That's why you must continue to limit your outings and contacts, apply the protective measures and wear a mask whenever it is not possible to keep a distance of 2 metres from people who do not live with you in the same house.
To avoid another period of confinement, we are appealing to everyone to act responsibly and with discipline in applying the protective measures and to thereby show solidarity particularly towards those who are vulnerable.
Maintain a 2 metre distance.
Cough and sneeze into your elbow crease, or into a paper handkerchief that you then throw away in a lidded bin.
Wear your mask.
