Social distancing, despite vaccination?
Even though it rarely happens, it is possible to contract and transmit the virus despite being vaccinated. And, sometimes, you don’t even show any symptoms. This is why you must continue to observe the familiar rules concerning hygiene and behaviour.
Keep your distance:
Namely at least 1.5 metres to the people around you. Maintaining this distance is and remains essential, both outdoors and indoors.
Wear a mask:
This is particularly important if you are unable to maintain the safe distance of 1.5 metres (e.g. in supermarkets, in restaurants or on the side-lines of football fields etc.).
Observe proper hygiene guidelines
Wash your hands thoroughly and regularly with soap and water. If you do have to cough or sneeze, always do it into a handkerchief or the crook of your arm.
Ensure sufficient ventilation:
Keep rooms well ventilated; normal breathing and speaking produces aerosols (tiny particles that float in the air) and droplets that can transmit the virus.
