KCDC asked the public to keep practicing the enhanced social distancing, which had been extended to 19 April. People should stay home as much as possible during the weekend, avoid any activities that make it easy to come in close contact with others, and maintain good personal hygiene including coughing etiquette and washing hands.

 


 

Call to actions for all citizens

 

Cancel or postpone all non-essential gatherings, dining out, social events, and travel plans.

* There have been numerous reports overseas of transmission by eating together. All meetings and events involving sharing a meal should especially be postponed or canceled.

Avoid leaving home except to purchase necessities, to get medical care, or to go to work.

Wash your hands, cover up your sneezes/coughs, and generally maintain strict personal hygiene.
