Work environment and covid-19

How can infection be prevented?

The basic infection control measures are:

  1. Sick people should stay at home
  2. Good hand and cough hygiene, and improved cleaning routines
  3. Contact reduction measures

The most important infection control measure is that sick people stay at home! This applies regardless of the type of disease, and even with mild symptoms. Cough hygiene and keeping a distance are crucial to limit droplet infection, while hand hygiene, and especially avoiding touching the face with unclean hands, is important to prevent indirect contact infection. Improved cleaning routines should be focused on, especially for contact points that are frequently affected. Increased physical distance between people will reduce the possibility of infection even before symptoms of illness occurs.
