Preventive measures for travellers

- Your behaviour counts!

Proper hand hygiene, washing your hands with soap and water, both when travelling and in order to prevent infection.
Use alcohol-based hand disinfection when you cannot wash your hands with soap and water.
Avoid contact with sick people, especially those showing symptoms of respiratory problems.
Avoid coughing on others, wash your hands regularly and thoroughly, and avoid travelling when sick.

Infection-preventing habits

Advice from Norwegian Institute of Public Health:

A paper tissue

Over your mouth and nose protects others when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue away immediatly. Then wash your hands.

Use a flexed elbow

When you cough or sneeze and do not have a tissue handy.

Wash your hands

Thourougly and often, particulary when around other people.

Hand disinfectant

With alcohol based products is a good alternative when you are unable to wash your hands, for example while travelling.
