Coronavirus can still make people ill. These tips will help prevent it from spreading.

  1. Wash your hands regularly
  2. Cough and sneeze in your elbow
  3. Having symptoms? Please stay home and take a self-test
  4. Make sure there is enough fresh air at work and at home
  5. Get a vaccination, booster or repeat injection against coronavirus

Wash your hands regularly

Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly, using water and soap. Always do this when you arrive home or are going to visit somewhere.

Cough and sneeze in your elbow

You use your elbow a lot less than your hands. This way you can reduce the chance of infecting someone else.

Having symptoms? Please stay home and take a self-test

Are you having symptoms that fit with coronavirus, like a cold or tightness of the chest? Prevent yourself from infecting others. Stay at home and take a self-test. If your self-test is positive, we would like to ask you to do the check below.

Do the check

Make sure there is enough fresh air at work and at home

Fresh air is important to reduce the transmission of the virus. Open a window or door regularly.

Get a vaccination, booster or repeat injection against coronavirus

Getting an injection is the best way to protect yourself and others against serious illness caused by coronavirus.
