Protect yourself from infection
Autumn is upon us, bringing rising numbers of COVID-19 cases and other diseases with it
The best protection against the coronavirus pandemic is vaccination, which significantly reduces both the risk of infection and, most importantly, the possibility of having a serious bout of the illness and ending up in hospital. However, even this does not provide absolute protection and, furthermore, the season of influenza and other respiratory diseases is approaching. So, let’s recap how to protect your health.
If you have not been vaccinated yet, consider all the benefits it brings. If there are no serious reasons preventing you from getting the vaccine, get it as soon as possible. In addition, the incentive programme, thanks to which you can receive two extra days off or up to 4,000 points in the ŠKODA Benefits Cafeteria, is being extended until the end of October.
Follow the rule of three: hands (regular washing or disinfection), face masks and distancing.
Disinfect items shared at work and at home.
Ventilate and maintain high relative humidity (above 40%) in rooms – for example, by setting a lower temperature while wearing warmer clothes. In a dry environment, the droplets dry out and the virus stays in the air for a long time and travels farther.
Keep yourself in good shape: Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, vitamins (especially C and D in the recommended daily dosage) and be physically active outdoors, in places where there are no people. Get enough rest and sleep.
If you experience symptoms of the disease, contact your doctor. How COVID-19 differs from other respiratory diseases was described in the ŠKODA Mobil no. 11–12 issue of 2020.
Report a confirmed infection or contact with an infected person in the COVID-19 Case Records application.
Don’t stress. Don’t focus exclusively on the COVID-19 news coverage and stay as active as possible. And if the situation weighs heavily on you, don’t be ashamed to ask for psychological help:
