Habits which help prevent infection

Good cough etiquette and good hand hygiene reduce infection from all respiratory infections, including the new coronavirus. The advices below should prevent transmission of infection, regardless of whether you are healthy or sick.

Hand hygiene

  • Wash hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and lukewarm water, particularly after coughing or sneezing, after using the toilet, before preparing food, before meals, after contact with animals and if your hands are visibly dirty. Wash your hands after coming home when you have been in contact with other people.
  • Hand disinfection products are effective against the coronavirus are a good alternative if hand washing is unavailable. If your hands are visibly dirty or wet, hand disinfection has a limited effect so hands should be cleaned with soap and water.

Cough etiquette

  • Avoid coughing or sneezing directly to the others.
  • Try to cough / sneeze into a paper tissue (disposed carefully afterwards), or into the crook of the elbow if you do not have tissues to hand.

Other preventive advices

  • As a general rule for all infections, sick people should stay at home and not go to work/place of study/school/childcare centre.
  • From 12th March, the Norwegian Directorate of Health introduced restrictions for visitors to all the country's health institutions. If the visit cannot be avoided, contact the department where the patient by telephone in advance so that necessary infection control measures can be implemented.
  • Limit shaking hands, kissing and hugging - this can reduce transmission.
  • Keep at least one metre away from both healthy people and people who are coughing or sneezing, if it is possible. This includes to limit contact with others, to not participate in leisure activities, to go to restaurants etc., where it is possible.
  • Avoid using public transport where possible. The exception is for people with functions critical to society who need to get to and from work, and who need to maintain a distance to others.
  • Avoid touching your face as much as possible - the virus can be transmitted from hands to mouth or the mucous membranes of the eyes and nose, and enter the body.
  • We recommend to not use face masks for healthy people outside the healthcare service.
