HOW COVID IS SPREAD
Authorities continue to believe, based on current science, that people are more likely to become infected the longer and closer they are to a person with COVID-19. Recent updates acknowledge the existence of some published reports showing limited, uncommon circumstances where people with COVID-19 infected others who were more than 2 meters away or shortly after the COVID-19-positive person left an area. In these instances, transmission occurred in poorly ventilated and enclosed spaces that often involved activities that caused heavier breathing, like singing or exercise. Such environments and activities may contribute to the build-up of virus-carrying particles.
People can protect themselves from the virus that causes COVID-19 by staying at least 2 meters away from others, wearing a mask that covers their nose and mouth, washing their hands frequently, cleaning touched surfaces often and staying home when sick.
COVID-19 is proving hard to contain and this has had a massive effect on peoples confidence in travel and meeting with others. Video calls have helped to ease this but this is nowhere near as good as face to face meetings and visits. If people are confident there is strict screening processes in place then this is a great step to getting back to some sort of normality.
As countries begin to open up commercial activities, authorities are encouraging and, in some places, requiring employers to develop and implement a comprehensive screening and monitoring strategy for employees aimed at preventing the introduction of COVID-19 into the workplace.
