Corona Guidelines

When someone who has COVID-19 coughs or exhales they release droplets of infected fluid. Most of these droplets fall on nearby surfaces and objects - such as desks, tables or telephones.

People could catch COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces or objects – and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. If they are standing within one meter of a person with COVID-19 they can catch it by breathing in droplets coughed out or exhaled by them. In other words, COVID-19 spreads in a similar way to flu.

  • Ensure that face masks(surgical mask) and / or paper tissues are available at your workplaces, for those who develop a runny nose or cough at work, along with closed bins for hygienically disposing of them.
  • Promote regular and thorough hand-washing by all.
  • Make sure your workplaces are clean and hygienic
  • Surfaces (e.g. desks and tables) and objects (e.g. telephones, keyboards) need to be wiped with disinfectant regularly
  • 5) Promote good respiratory hygiene in the workplace
  • 6) Encourage students to wash their hands regularly and stay at least one meter away from people who are coughing or sneezing
  • 7) Students who have returned should monitor themselves for symptoms for 14 days and take their temperature twice a day
