Healthcare rules for the containment of COVID infection (as dictated by the Ministry of Health)

  • Use of masks

Masks serve to reduce the risk that the wearer may infect others, as they stop a good part of the tiny droplets emitted from the mouth and nose when we couch, sneeze, talk. The use of the mask therefore helps to limit the spread of the virus, but it must be adopted in addition to hand washing and respiratory hygiene measures (sneezing and coughing in the crook of the elbow). Even with the mask, the safety distance (over 1 metre) must be maintained.

To visit “Su Nuraxi” Archaeological Area, “Casa Zapata” Museum and the Centre “Giovanni Lilliu” it is obligatory to wear a mask covering the nose and mouth. The mask must be worn for the entire duration of the visit.

  • Frequent hand washing

Hand washing is intended to ensure adequate cleaning and hand hygiene through mechanical action. Common hand soap is sufficient for hand hygiene. In the absence of water, you can resort to so-called hand sanitisers, alcohol-based. Remember that proper hand hygiene requires that you do not less than 40-60 seconds if you have chosen to wash with soap and water and not less than 20-40 seconds if you have opted for use of alcohol-based sanitisers. These products should be used when the hands are dry, otherwise they are not effective. If used frequently they can cause dry skin.

Inside “Su Nuraxi” Archaeological Area, “Casa Zapata” Museum and the Centre “Giovanni Lilliu”, sanitising liquid dispensers will be available.

  • Avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth with hands

The virus is mainly transmitted through the respiratory tract, but it can also enter the body through the eyes, nose and mouth. Therefore, avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
If your hands come into contact with surfaces contaminated by the virus, they can cause infection.

  • Avoid close contact with other people

Maintain an interpersonal distance from other people of over 1 metre.

  • Avoid sharing bottles and glasses
