You already know what to do when you leave the house to be as safe as possible from infection and also what to do once inside the house. But there is a space in which we still do not know very well how to act.

What steps can I take to prevent contagion in my building?

The General Council of Colleges of Property Administrators has published a series of very useful tips for ensuring the proper functioning of buildings in the face of the alarm caused by the coronavirus.

Recommendations to be safe in your building

The first and most basic thing is also to keep the safety distance (at least one and a half meters) from other people in your building.
Use the elevator only when necessary. Obviously, don’t use it when someone else is inside. Also protect your hands to press the buttons or open the door. If you can, use the ladder. It is safer and will also help you stay in shape.
As you know, the use of common areas of the neighboring community such as playgrounds, gardens, recreation areas, swimming pools, solariums and any enclosure or enclosed common area is prohibited.
The farm administrators decided to develop these recommendations in the absence of information on this subject. In other words, we know how we should behave when we go out, we also know what to do when we get home.

But there is a space that has been little taken into account and it is the building in which we live: the elevator, the staircase, the gate, the roof of the building, the parking lot … What should we do to be protected also in these areas?

What to do if you order food at home

If you order food at home or other things, it is advisable to be as safe as possible, that is to wash your hands well before handling coins and banknotes and to do so as soon as possible after.
We hope you find these recommendations helpful in knowing how to behave safely inside your building. The situation is complicated but, being responsible, we can all move forward together.
