08 March 2020

​​The Ministry of Health (MOH) asked those who have been in Italy, South Korea, Egypt, and Lebanon to self-quarantine for two weeks starting from the date of their return. Through an Infographic published in its twitter page, MOH outlines isolation procedures at home including sneezing or coughing in tissues and dispose of them in a trash bin or covering your mouth with the elbow and washing hands with soap and water or disinfected alcohol. It underlined the importance of staying in a private room and asking others to do their home needs for them. Also, it advised them to avoid traveling or wandering at public places and receiving visitors at home. 

In case you have to communicate with others, keep a distance from them, no less than a meter, wear a face mask when you are outside home or in contact with others. If you shoe symptoms contact the 937 Service Center.

Such a step comes in continuation of MOH's efforts and awareness messages published on different media platforms. Meanwhile, MOH called on everyone to call 937 Service Center for any inquiry about the virus and reiterated the importance of getting from reliable sources, and avoid succumbing to rumors and fake news.
