Current Rules And Guidelines

The Ministry of Health (MoH) has issued guidelines on infection prevention and control (IPC) of COVID-19 at different places. The general guidelines are

  • Everyone should maintain a distance minimum of 1 metre (3 feet) in public places.
  • Use of face covers/masks to be mandatory.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol- based hand sanitizer.
  • Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. 
  • Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority
  • Keep up to date on the latest COVID-19 hotspots (cities or local areas where COVID-19 is spreading widely). If possible, avoid traveling to places – especially if you are an older person or have diabetes, heart or lung disease.
