Protection tips on Coronavirus Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2)
Wash your hands
Thorough washing with soap or washing lotion reliably kills corona viruses. To protect the skin, hospital and outpatient staff* use hand disinfectants instead. The effect is comparable when used properly. Your hands should be washed or disinfected especially before touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Washing hands: Soap up to the wrist for at least 20 seconds
Correct sneezing and coughing
The new coronavirus is mainly transmitted by droplets (directly or via the hands).
To protect others: keep your distance when coughing or sneezing, turn away and sneeze into the crook of your arm (not into your hands).
Be careful when touching
Viruses can adhere to surfaces that are touched by many people. For safety, elevator buttons can be pressed with a pen or door handles can be operated with the elbow.
If skin contact could not be avoided, it is recommended to wash or disinfect hands immediately.
Keep your distance
Infected people who are still feeling healthy can also be contagious.
So please: Keep your distance, just over a meter is enough. It is better to avoid shaking hands and hugging.
Avoid groups of people
The new regulation prohibits all kinds of events and meetings. Nevertheless, groups can still be found in parks or in private rooms. For your health – and that of everyone else – please strictly adhere to the rules in force.
Wearing a protective mask
Face masks protect the wearer’s surroundings and can, if everyone participates, flatten the curve.
An MNS mask does not provide reliable protection against corona infection and should therefore not give a false sense of security. However, together we can flatten the curve and protect our fellow human beings with such protective measures. Please do not touch the surface of the mask after putting it on and disinfect your hands. A used mask is a potential accumulation of viruses just like a used handkerchief.

Call the practice of your family doctor, in Berlin the hotline of the senate administration 030-9028-2828 (8 a.m. to 8 p.m.) or the Kassenärztliche Notdienst 116117 (24 hours a day – also on weekends) to get information about further steps. Do not enter the waiting room unannounced.
Only in case of severe symptoms (fever with shortness of breath) call the fire department. When you call, tell them if you think you are infected with the coronavirus and why you think so (return from a risk area, contact with infected persons, …).
