Coughing, runny nose

Recommendations and Regulations

Please cover your mouth and your nose. Ideally with disposable tissue. Please place the used tissue straight into a bin.

If you do not have a disposable tissue with you, please cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands. If you coughed or sneezed into your hands, wash or sanitize your hands afterwards.

If you need to blow your nose while wearing a face mask, please remove your face mask for the time required to do so. Please sanitize your hands afterwards.

If you need to sneeze while travelling via public transport, please sneeze with your face mask or respirator on. By doing this, the face mask becomes contaminated. If you wore a disposable face mask, bin it and use a new face mask. Textile face mask would need to be placed into a sealable plastic bag, and disinfected when you arrive home.

When sneezing or coughing, larger droplets are formed. Therefore, it is essential to do this correctly. Please follow basic hygiene measures. By doing this, you protect yourself and others.
