The Guide recommends all patients to observe the following hygiene rules:
- wear a mask – those widely used, including surgical masks – when outside your home, particularly if you have to go to a hospital for visits, tests and/or treatment;
- frequently wash your hands thoroughly;
- do not accept visits in your home from relatives or friends with respiratory symptoms, or from visitors coming from areas of high risk;
- to avoid contagion, keep a distance of at least one meter from anyone with respiratory symptoms. Make sure they wear a mask.
