Recommendations from the prefecture
The Prefecture of Guadeloupe would like to make a few recommendations in the light of the still-vibrant viral circulation:
– Maintain a safe distance and wear a mask, particularly for people who are weak or vulnerable. This advice also applies to everyone who is in an enclosed space with a high population density, such as airports and stadiums, as well as during large gatherings such as outdoor festivals.
-In the event of symptoms that suggest infection, such as a fever or other types of pain, get yourself checked out right away and tested if you are asymptomatic. To safeguard themselves, frail individuals must continue to observe strict protocols.
