Dear tenants of Staytoo,
“With common sense, we can all help to prevent the virus from spreading further,” said the head of the Robert Koch Institute, Lothar Wieler.
In the meantime, more and more cases of coronavirus are being reported in Germany. Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg and Berlin are the first German states to postpone the start of the summer term until after Easter.
An essential part of Staytoo is the exchange and meeting with like-minded people in the common areas. However, due to current events, we consider it appropriate not to hold any events organized by Staytoo until further notice. Therefore there will be no farewell and welcome parties organized by Staytoo.
Of course, the common areas are still available to all tenants to the best of our knowledge and belief. In your own interest and that of your neighbours you should make sure that no externals guests use the areas.
The further development remains to be seen, but we would like to make some recommendations, since the right behaviour can prevent infections and slow down the expansion of the virus.
The most effective protection starts with usual measures, which also apply to any flu epidemic: Observe the sneezing and coughing etiquette, wash your hands regularly and thoroughly, and keep a distance of about 1 to 2 metres from those who are ill. Wearing of masks, however, is not recommended at present.
If you have any complaints such as coughing, fever:
- Stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
- Do not simply go to the doctor, but clarify the procedure by telephone first (call your doctor or use the patent service on “116117” or 116117.de).
If you come from a risk area, or have had contact with sick people or suffer from complaints such as coughing, fever, etc.:
- Persons who (independently of a trip) had personal contact with a person infected by the novel coronavirus should immediately – even if they do not show any signs of illness – contact their local health authority. You can find your local health office in the database of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI).
- Persons who have stayed in a risk area designated by the Robert Koch Institute should – even if they have no signs of illness – avoid unnecessary contact and stay at home, if possible. If signs of respiratory symptoms occur, they should observe the rules for proper coughing and sneezing and good hand hygiene and inform a doctor. It is important that you first contact your doctor by telephone. During the conversation, tell him or her about your trip and discuss how to proceed before you go to a doctor’s office.
- For travelers from regions where Corona is present, if you develop a fever, cough, or shortness of breath within 14 days of returning home, you should first contact a doctor by phone. In this conversation, make sure he or she is aware of your trip and discuss the next steps before you go to a doctor’s office. You should also avoid unnecessary contact and stay at home if possible, and follow the rules for proper coughing and sneezing and good hand hygiene.
