General recommendations

The Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic has issued the following basic guidelines, which are almost identical with those set by the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are obviously sick.
  • Use a disinfectant if you come into contact with people who suffer from acute respiratory infections.
  • Avoid crowded areas.
  • Individuals suffering from respiratory illnesses should observe the rules of respiratory hygiene – i.e. when coughing and sneezing, properly use (ideally single-purpose) tissues, when coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth with your arm or with your sleeve, not just with your hand (the droplet infection may spread to another person).
  • Health professionals should protect themselves particularly well as they come into contact with patients most frequently.
