Coronavirus recommendations


What is the new coronavirus?

An epidemic of a new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, is spreading from China to various regions of the globe. The virus can cause symptoms such as coughing, fever, and shortness of breath. In a limited number of cases, it has resulted in more serious infections and even death.


  • Avoid contact with sick people, especially those who cough.
  • Avoid markets and places where animals are handled, live or dead.
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water OR use an alcohol-based disinfectant solution.
  • Avoid contact with animals, their secretions or their excrement.

For those of you who have been in physical contact with people who have traveled to infected areas:

  • If you have no symptoms (fever, cough, respiratory infection, etc.): we recommend that you apply the principle of self-monitoring.
  • In case of symptoms: you should contact 112 directly who will tell you what to do.

Travelers from a risk exposure area

If you have recently returned from an exposure area, and you develop fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, within 14 days of your return:

  • Stay at home and avoid contact with other people. Call (+352) 24785650 or 112 for advice and help, mentioning your recent move to one of these areas.
  • Avoid going to the emergency room; if necessary, 112 will direct you to the appropriate hospital service. In any case, mention at the front desk that you have stayed in one of these areas.
  • Without a work sick leave or quarantine certificate, you are considered to be fit for work.

Avoid any unnecessary travel and follow local instructions.
