Better safe than sorry. The rapid expansion of coronavirus will bring some changes in our everyday life in next few Weeks. There’s no need to panic but we should all act responsibly as much as we can.
Schools and kindergartens around Slovenia are officially closing down on Monday, 16.3.2020. The government introduced several protective measures in the last few days to contain the Coronavirus, which has so far infected at least 96 people in Slovenia. Indoor events with more than 100 visitors are banned, museums, galleries, theaters will be closed until further notice and people are asked to work from home if possible.
This are just a few restrictions but we can all use this time not for panic but something good: read a good book more, enjoy fresh air in the nature and spend time with your loved ones. And most importantly: take care of your hygiene and follow the protocol.
Here are some useful tips from WHO (World Health Organization) to reduse your risk of coronavirus infection:
Also important: READ A COMMANDED PROTOCOL
