MEMO ON THE PREVENTION OF VIRAL INFECTIONS
Addendum to the order of the rector of the University
MEMO ON THE PREVENTION OF VIRAL INFECTIONS
Dear teachers, employees and students of Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno!
We ask you to pay more attention to your health and the health of others and take into account the following recommendations:
* follow all recommended personal hygiene rules (wash your hands with soap and/or hand sanitizer (preferably alcohol-based), keep your distance when communicating, minimize contact if possible, and avoid mass events)
An effective way to clean your hands in a timely manner in any situation is to use an antiseptic hand sanitizer in an individual package or disinfecting wipes. Clean hands guarantee that people will not spread viri, infecting themselves when they touch their mouths and noses, and others - through surfaces. Wash your hands as often as possible, especially after using public transport, after any visit to the street and public places, before and after eating. Wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds, not forgetting the areas between your fingers, around your nails, cuticles, and a thumb.
• keep surfaces clean
Organize regular wet cleaning of rooms using household detergents and/or disinfectants, with an emphasis on the treatment of all surfaces. When cleaning rooms, it is necessary to carefully treat door handles, handrails, tables, chairs, other furniture, sanitary equipment, computer keyboards and mice, other gadgets, telephones, control panels, panels of office equipment for general use and other items that people touch.
Pay attention to the processing of mobile communication devices. Clean your phone by wiping it with a microfiber cloth dampened with soap and water, especially the part that contacts with your face. There are also recommendations for treating the surface of the phone with alcohol-containing disinfectants, taking precautions against damage to the phone. Remove and clean the gadget’s case separately, and it is better to refuse to use the case. Clean the phone after each visit to public places, transport, and after the end of the working day.
* Ventilate the premises and humidify the air by any available means regularly and as often as possible
• use medical face masks
The main function of the mask is a barrier delay of moisture drops that are formed when coughing and sneezing, and in which micro-organisms (viruses, bacteria, etc.) can be suspended. The right use of masks can limit the spread of micro-organisms to a certain extent. The use of masks is effective only in combination with other methods of prevention (contact minimization, hand hygiene, disinfection of objects).
The mask MUST be used:
The mask CAN be used:
By an ill person that has symptoms of a respiratory infection (cough, sneezing, runny nose, etc.)
By healthy people when being in public places where there is a possibility of a contact with an ill person that has respiratory symptoms
By a medical worker when providing medical care to a patient
By a worker (a person) when taking care after an ill person with respiratory infections
The algorithm for using a single-use mask.
1. Treat your hands with alcohol or wash them with soap.
2. Holding it by the drawstring or the elastic band, closely bring it to the face with the white side inward and fix the ties (rubber bands) in a position where the lower part of the face (mouth and nose) is completely covered.
3. Give the desired shape to the flexible strip (nose clip), ensuring a tight fit of the mask to the face.
4. Remove the product by holding it by the ties (elastic band) at the back, without touching the front of the mask.
5. Place the removed mask in the bag, seal it tightly and throw it in a waste container (trash bin).
6. Wash your hands with soap or treat them with alcohol.
7. If you need to put on a new mask, follow steps 1-3.
The algorithm for using a reusable mask.
1. Treat your hands with alcohol or wash them with soap.
2. Holding the mask by the ties or elastic bands, bring it close to the face and fix it with the ties (elastic bands) in a position where the lower part of the face (both the mouth and nose) is completely covered.
3. Make sure that the mask fits closely to your face.
4. Remove the mask by holding it by the ties (elastic band) at the back, without touching the front of the mask.
5. Place the removed mask in the bag, seal it tightly and store it until washing.
6. At home, the mask must be washed using soap (detergent), separately from other things. After washing, the mask can be treated with steam using a steam iron or steam generator. Then iron it with a hot iron (without steam) to remove moisture. The mask must be completely dry!
7. Wash your hands with soap or treat them with alcohol-containing products.
8. If you need to wear a clear mask, follow steps 1-3.
General rules for single-use and reusable masks.
Rule 1. Use the mask for no more than two hours.
Rule 2. Immediately replace the mask if it gets wet (humidified), even if less than two hours have passed since use.
Rule 3. Do not touch the attached mask with your hands.
Rule 4. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap or treat them with an alcohol-containing product after touching the mask you are using or used.
* if possible, avoid moving around the country and stay at your current place of residence (hostel, private or rented housing).
This is one of the preventive measures used around the world to limit contact with elderly relatives and people at risk.
The Ministry of Health Care of the Republic of Belarus recommends taking preventive measures, even if cases of COVID-19 infection are not registered in a locality, since these measures are effective for preventing infection and the spread of any respiratory viri active during the current period of the year.
IT IS IMPORTANT! If you have an increase in temperature, symptoms of SARS, you need to contact the clinic at your place of residence or call an emergency service (number 103) and follow their instructions.
If your body temperature rises above 37.0 degrees, we recommend that you stay at home and call the doctor of the polyclinic at your place of residence (registration).
Contact phone numbers for calling a doctor at home:
