Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2: Barrier and physical distancing measures for the general population

The HCSP was asked about the tailoring of barrier measures and social distancing (outside the healthcare settings and nursing homes) after the lockdown period and to prepare the lockdown exit. The HCSP is requesting the maintenance of barrier measures including physical distancing, hand hygiene, wearing a mask and individual and collective arrangements.

The HCSP stated that the wearing of cloth face masks that meet standard specifications, whether manufactured or home-made, constitutes a complementary measure to physical distancing measures, other barrier precautions, hand hygiene, the ventilation of premises and the cleaning/disinfection of surfaces. The wearing of such cloth face masks by the general population is justified within confined spaces, in particular if they are poorly or insufficiently ventilated, and in outdoor environments where a physical distance of at least 1 metre cannot be maintained or guaranteed. The HCSP sets out the following measures in its notice:

  • Physical distancing (apart physical activity)
  • The regulation of sports activities
  • Restricting the numbers of individuals in collective spaces
  • Barrier measures
  • Hand hygiene
  • Cloth face masks
  • The treatment of laundry and the cleaning/disinfection of premises
  • Waste disposal measures
  • Effluent management measures
  • Specific cleaning/disinfection measures for public spaces
  • Aeration and modification measures for ventilation systems
  • The cleaning/disinfection of premises prior to the reopening of public buildings
  • Specific measures for public transport
  • Measures for large and small supermarkets and markets
  • Specific measures for public swimming pools
  • Specific measures for schools
  • Specific measures for the workplace
  • Specific measures for mass catering
  • Specific measures for facilities catering for individuals infected with SARS-CoV-2
  • Specific measures for individuals with severe forms of Covid-19 cases who receive home visits
