Keep your distance and take personal responsibility
The best way to protect yourself and others from infection is to avoid close contact with people who are ill. General advice on avoiding infection is given below from the Public Health Agency of Sweden.
1. Stay home if you feel unwell
Stay at home for as long as you feel unwell. If your condition gets worse and you are unable to care for yourself at home, please call 1177 for healthcare advice. Do not return to work or school for at least two days after you have recovered.
2. Watch for symptoms of COVID-19
The main symptoms reported are a fever and a cough. Other common symptoms are shortness of breath, a sore throat, a headache and aching muscles or joints. Most people only experience mild symptoms that get better by themselves through self-care at home. Some people develop more severe illness such as breathing difficulties or pneumonia.
3. Wash your hands often and avoid touching your face
Our hands are a good environment for infectious agents. The infection is transmitted to others when we shake hands. So, wash your hands often with soap and hot water, for at least 20 seconds.
