nor in training, always using disposable glasses or a nominal or
otherwise personalised bottle, and do not exchange other items
(towels, etc.) with your companions.
Avoid consuming food in the changing rooms.
Put personal items and clothing in bags, avoiding leaving them
exposed in the changing rooms.
Immediately throw paper tissues or other used materials such as
plasters, bandages, etc. into the appropriate containers.
Wash your hands thoroughly as often as possible: hand washing
and disinfection are decisive to prevent infection. Hands should
be washed with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and then,
after rinsing them thoroughly, they should be dried with a
disposable towel; if soap and water are not available, a 60%
alcohol-based hand sanitizer can also be used.
Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue - preferably disposable
- or with your arm, but not with your hand, if you cough or
Air all rooms as often as possible.
Periodically disinfect change rooms and common areas.
Invite people who experience symptoms of an ongoing respiratory
infection and / or fever to leave the premises immediately and
seek medical attention.
For those who have not yet been vaccinated against the flu, take
the flu vaccine as quickly as possible, in order to make
diagnosis and management of suspected cases easier.
Inquire from athletes and corporate staff if there have been any
contacts in person or within their family with people who have
returned from countries at risk or in quarantine.
