How do I protect myself from an infection?
A quick overview of how to avoid an infection with the corona virus – but of course also other diseases such as seasonal flu – can be found in a graphic of the province of Salzburg. This can be downloaded free of charge in German and English at https://www.salzburg.gv.at/themen/gesundheit/corona-virus or https://www.salzburg.gv.at/themen/gesundheit/corona-virus/corona-english
Regular hand washing (up to behind the wrist) with soap and water and, where possible, with subsequent hand disinfection (at least 60% alcohol).
Important: Hand disinfection (the same applies to surfaces) is only effective if surfaces are dry and clean beforehand and the alcohol can dry out (approx. 1 min.).
Avoid touching mouth, nose and eyes Sneezing/coughing in the crook of your arm and single use of disposable handkerchiefs
Contact with third parties
Do not shake hands when greeting.
Close contact (< 2 metres) with people with acute respiratory diseases should be avoided wherever possible, regardless of their origin.
Furthermore, the social distance of one meter should be maintained.
If a corona virus infection is suspected (after the incubation period, the symptoms are often similar to the flu: nausea, tiredness and fever, followed by a dry cough), the affected person must stay at home and should not go out in public. A doctor or health care institution must be contacted immediately.
Wearing simple hygiene masks does not reliably protect healthy people from infection. The viruses are so small that they can enter the upper airways through the mask paper when inhaled.
However, in the case of sick people, hygiene masks can significantly reduce the spread of the viruses.
