Information regarding COVID-19 infection
The new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) is also present in Romania and is spreading rapidly. Given that there have been also registered cases in Covasna County, we urge you to pay special attention to the following, during your visit to our county.
The virus spreads mainly through infections caused by: coughing, sneezing, exhaling into the environment or bystanders. Touching infected surfaces and objects can bring the virus onto your hands, and then into your body by touching the face, mouth or nose. Frequent hand washing, preferably with soap and water or a hand disinfectant with at least 60% alcohol, can significantly reduce the risk of infection. When sneezing or coughing, it is recommended that you use a tissue that you dispose of immediately after use and then thoroughly washing the hands. It is advisable to ignore the usual forms of contact and greeting, such as handshakes, kisses or friendly hugs.
Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever, dry coughing, shortness of breath, but also muscle pain, sore throat, nasal congestion, diarrhea, runny nose or fatigue. All forms of contact with a febrile patient should be avoided if possible.
