At home and at work keep COVID-19 at bay

En casa y en el trabajo, mantén a raya la COVID-19

At home and in your work environment, ventilate your rooms well every day, for long enough for the air to be renewed at least once a day.

If you have air conditioning, make sure that a maintenance technician has checked the indoor and outdoor units at the beginning of the season. Especially if there has been a sick person at home or at work.

Dust your furniture with a damp cloth and then with another cloth soaked in a solution of 1 litre of water with a cap (20 ml) of bleach, preferably wearing gloves. The mixture should be discarded after 24 hours. You can also use 70 proof alcohol or any household product with a germicidal action.

At work, make sure that your work area is cleaned with authorised germicidal products at least once a day, including rest areas of common use and frequent contact surfaces such as knobs, tables, handrails, telephones, counters, chairs, changing rooms, lockers, toilets etc.

Disinfect your mobile phone and other delicate objects such as computer screens, keyboards, mouse, remote controls, tablets, electronic books, camera lenses, etc., you can do it with isopropyl alcohol available in paint shops, among others.

Wash your hands with soap and water for 40 seconds or, failing that, use a hand sanitizer for 20 seconds before eating, after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose, before handling food, after touching or cleaning surfaces that may be contaminated, and after using or sharing computers, keyboards, mouse, etc.

If you are going to sneeze or cough, do so on a tissue (and throw it away afterwards) or do so in the crease of your elbow so as not to contaminate your hands

If you have a dishwasher at home, wash dishes at 60°C. Otherwise, wash it by hand with hot water and detergent.

Wash all clothes at a temperature between 40º and 60ºC, if the type of fabric allows so (read label).
