Report suspicion / confirmed case of COVID-19

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 immediately. Then wash your hands.

Use a flexed elbow

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

Wash your hands

Thoroughly and often, particularly 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.
