Information about COVID-19

In compliance with the guidelines established by the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, we inform you about the following aspects:

What are the most common symptoms of COVID?
The most common symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath. In some cases there may also be loss of smell and taste, chills, sore throat, muscle aches, headache, general weakness, diarrhoea or vomiting. Most cases are mild. There are also cases without symptoms (asymptomatic).

What should I do if I have symptoms compatible with COVID-19?
The Regional Government of the Community of Madrid has set up the following telephone number for this type of case:
Telephone 900 102 112

How is it transmitted and how can I protect myself?
Through secretions emitted when breathing, talking, exhaling, singing, coughing, sneezing or doing intense exercise, when they reach the mucous membranes and conjunctiva of other people. Smaller particles can remain suspended in the air and reach people more than 2 metres away. However, most transmission occurs over short distances, which is why it is important to keep a safe distance. Transmission is also considered possible by direct or indirect contact with surfaces contaminated with such secretions, through hands that then come into contact with the mucous membranes or conjunctiva.

To protect against the new coronavirus and other respiratory viruses, the health authorities recommend that you:

• Wear a mask covering nose, mouth and chin.
• Stay at least 1.5 metres away from other people.
• Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly.
• Cough or sneeze into your bent elbow.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
