Since September 1, study at the MSSES has been held in full-time off-line format, which means that we can again see each other in classrooms, prepare for an essay in a beautiful library, and have lively conversations in the corridors over coffee. This has become possible thanks to new rules that must be followed to prevent coronavirus infection. This page contains materials that will help you take care of yourself and those around you.

How to behave so as not to get infected?

  • The coronavirus spreads through droplets that form when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Therefore, it is so important to observe safety measures when you are in contact with other people. The virus can also remain on various surfaces: handrails in vehicles, doorknobs, or household items. To minimize your risk of getting sick:
  • Be sure to wear masks when you come to class. Remember that the disposable medical mask needs to be changed every 2-3 hours. If you have a reusable mask, it should be disinfected regularly.
  • Wash your hands often with soap (try to do this for 40-60 seconds) and use antiseptics.
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose, or eyes (a mask or respirator will also help you with this).
  • Clean and disinfect your smartphone, computer and other items you work with regularly.
  • If possible, keep a distance of at least 1 meter when communicating with colleagues and classmates.
  • Keep healthy habits in mind: exercise, get enough sleep and eat more foods rich in protein, vitamins and minerals.

How can the coronavirus manifest itself?

The symptoms of a new coronavirus infection are largely the same as those of acute respiratory viral infection. High body temperature, cough, shortness of breath, muscle pain and fatigue are the main manifestations. Rare but also common symptoms include headache, a feeling of heaviness in the chest, nausea, and upset stomach.

If you feel unwell, what to do?

Stay home. If you get worse, be sure to see a doctor for tests and qualified medical care. It is better to refrain from visiting hospitals and clinics and call 112 or 103 to call a doctor at home.
