In relation to this, the authorities continously remind everyone to be aware of the risk of Covid 19 infection in different settings. COVID-19 spreads more easily in crowded places, close-contact settings, and confined and enclosed spaces with poor ventilation. The risk is higher in places where these factors overlap.
Due to this, everyone is advised to stay indoors as much as possible, wear mask, maintain social distancing and sanitize hands frequently.
Qualified individuals are also encouraged to get vaccinated in order to protect themselves and the population from the virus.
