If you belong to an at-risk group: please stay at home!

Soite’s haematologist, chief physician in oncology and chief physician in infectious diseases have expressed a strong concern about persons in at-risk groups still being out and about in public places.

The recommendations that apply to those who are over 70 years old also apply to people of all ages who belong to an at-risk group: they should stay at home in quarantine-like conditions and avoid close contact with other people!

▪️ Crowds and public places should be avoided.

▪️ If it is necessary to go to the store or the pharmacy oneself, this should be done when there aren’t so many other people there.

▪️ One should keep a distance of at least one metre to other people.

▪️ Do not visit anybody.

▪️ You can keep in contact with your friends and relatives by phone, by video calls and by sending messages.

▪️ Please attend to hand hygiene even more carefully than usual.

▪️ Going outside is allowed, as long as one keeps a distance to other people.
