THIS IS HOW WE ARE HELPING TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE CORONAVIRUS
Even mild flu symptoms are a good reason to stay home
If you have any symptoms of flu, i.e. a runny nose, cough, sore throat, headache or fever, please stay home.
Please maintain a safe distance
The virus is highly contagious when in close contact. If you see that there is a line to our cash or information desk, please wait a moment and make sure to keep a safe distance from others.
We wash our hands
The best way to avoid contracting the coronavirus is to wash your hands. That is why we are asking everyone to maintain good hand hygiene. Hand sanitizer and hand washing stations are available in our premises.
We cough and sneeze properly
Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when you cough or sneeze. Put all used tissues in the rubbish bin immediately. If you do not have a tissue, please cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
Cleaning has been intensified.
We are now paying heightened attention to the cleaning of our facilities and the cleaning of different surfaces in particular. The situation is being actively monitored.
We follow current health and safety guidelines
We follow the current official guidelines for the coronavirus epidemic, as well as the health safety measures required by the Communicable Diseases Act.
