In Paris, facing coronavirus, every little detail count. While covid-19 also known as coronavirus gains a little big of ground every day in Paris and in 50 countries in the world, the city of Paris and the French authorities ask the population to observe health instructions in order to limit contagion risks.
To answer all the questions we may have facing such a threat as badly identified as this one, the government set up an informative website, https://www.gouvernement.fr/info-coronavirus. And to limit infections, the first essential gestures may seem obvious, but let’s remind you of them, it’s always useful.
Essential gestures to avert coronavirus:
Today, the government has announced no counterargument against public transport. If you’re ill, wearing a face mask stays the best solution. And even though it’s not very comfortable, health prevails! Moreover, the Secretary of Health recommends the good gestures to keep in order to protect your health, especially if you travel from China, Singapore, South Korea, Iran or regions from northern Italy, highly impacted too.
Instructions to observe (at least 14 days following your return for travelers):
In the same time, the City of Paris has declared anticipated the settlement of preventive measures against the pandemic. All public kindergartens, schools and junior high schools have face masks available. Inside, hygiene recommendations are regularly shared and the procedure to set up in case of suspicion. Moreover, a systematic exclusion process in daycares and activity clubs for children coming back from China is set up.
You’re highly recommended not to go to gyms in town if you come back from China and not to take part in adults’ municipal meetings.
As for instructions in case of respiratory infection, here’s a little memo of what to do: call 15 for the paramedics and tell them about your symptoms and recent stay, avoid any contact with your entourage and wear a face mask. Last but not least, don’t go to a doctor or the ER to avoid any possible infection.
