During the consultation, the history of the trip will be mentioned. Also, if you initially have no symptoms, but within 14 days they appear, any passenger is required to call 112 to be picked up by a special ambulance.

As for passengers wishing to travel to Coronavirus-infected areas, it is suggested to avoid crowded markets, crowded public places or where live or dead animals are handled. Of course, it is advisable to avoid contact with people who have difficult respiratory symptoms.

Also, hygiene is very important. The mask should only be worn if you have respiratory problems, it is useful not to spread the virus. Wash your hands very often with soap and water, especially after each use of common objects in public spaces, including the seats in the waiting areas of airports.
