Stay home if you are sick
We advise avoiding all all non-essential movements outside of your home. If you have cold, influenza or COVID-19 symptoms, even mild ones, staying at home is the best way to prevent the spread of contagious respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19.
If you experience fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, and you have traveled to an infected place and have had contact with an infected person in the last 14 days you should go to your nearest primary health center immediately, or call:
