Personal hygiene always helps to avoid illnesses and diseases and at the moment is very important. Within your own four walls the following measures help to protect you and others:
• Observe proper coughing and sneezing etiquette, keep at least two metre between you and others and sneeze or cough into the crook of your arm
• If members of your household fall ill, adopt spatial separation measures where possible
• Let air into rooms or use an air purifier
• If you fall ill, work from home and do not make unnecessary journeys
• In the case of corona infections, avoid contact with risk groups
These rules also apply when you are out and about. In addition, you should adopt the following measures for your own safety:
• Observe 1.5 to 2 metre distance to other people
• Avoid shaking hands or hugging
• Regularly clean and disinfect surfaces such as the steering wheel in the car, door handles, mobile phones, etc
• Avoid non-essential trips (holidays), the use of public transport, as well as large events.
Clean, germ-free air is extremely important in the working world, for instance in offices, public or medical facilities. Poor air quality can generally lead to health problems, diminished performance capability and lost work time among employees. But infectious germs can also be spread in the air. Depending on the version, air purifiers can provide a remedy by fighting germs in the air and cleaning the room air.
