Preventive Measures in Communities

Some simple methods to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in gathering places

Preparing and providing the latest preventive measures will help you to protect yourself and others from infection, as infection can spread easily in public places. Public gatherings can lead to a 10% increase in infection rate, so make sure to:

  • Avoid crowded places
  • Take influenza vaccine

Also, there are some important measures that you can take to protect yourself and those around you in gathering places:

  • Avoid travel and public places upon infection
  • Stay at home when you experience symptoms, as the virus can spread from an infected person for up to 24 hours after symptoms subside
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing with paper tissues and dispose of them directly in the trash
  • Maintain an appropriate distance from the gathering area, as the virus is transmitted by saliva droplets to a distance that reaches 3 feet
  • Wash and sterilize your hands frequently
  • Be careful not to touch your face (eyes, nose, or mouth)
  • Avoid sharing your mobile phone
