Basic Protective Measures against COVID-19

Dear employees and students of the Financial University! Financial University asks you to take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

  1. Avoid visiting public places or events, for instance, shopping malls, sports centers, concert halls, public transport;

  2. Change a mask every 2-3 hours. Single-use masks are an effective means of preventing the spread of the virus. Wear a mask when you are in a public place, do not reuse it. Change it each 3 hours or even more often. If your mask is wet, change it. 

  3. Maintain social distancing (at least 1 meter) between yourself and a person who is coughing or sneezing.  Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth as you can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick. Сover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately since the droplets spread virus.

  4. Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly when returning from public places. Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based sanitizer kills viruses that may be on your hands.

  5. Disinfect your gadgets, business equipment, and other surfaces that you touch. Regular disinfection kills viruses. Use household detergent or alcohol sanitizers to wipe the surfaces.

  6. Avoid shaking hands or hugging or kissing people as part of a greeting.

  7. Use your own private necessities (towels, toothbrushes).

Financial University asks you to take these measures seriously and spend time at home! Be careful and take care!
