I have a vulnerable health condition

Advice to you

You belong to the risk group for severe COVID-19 , so stick to the following advice:

  • Avoid physical contact with people who are sick or have respiratory symptoms, such as coughing, sneezing, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose.
  • Wear a face mask (at least type II or IIR) if physical contact is necessary (such as in the case of providing care), especially if it is difficult to maintain a distance of 1.5 meters.
  • Avoid gatherings with too many people at once, for example limit to four people at a time.
  • If you want to be extra cautious, ask people to maintain distance, especially if there are respiratory viruses such as the flu or coronavirus going around.
  • Do grocery shopping during quieter times, if possible.

Advice to protect others

Please note
  • Stay at home if you are ill.
  • If your symptoms are mild, ask your manager/employer if you can work at home.
  • If you have symptoms, avoid physical contact with people who could become seriously ill from a cold or flu virus. Wear a face mask if physical contact is necessary, for example, when providing care.
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow. Wash your hands often and well, even if you have no complaints.
  • Ensure adequate ventilation of indoor areas.
