Meetings enrich our lives, but not ‘now’.
To stop Corona19, ‘we’ must stop.
‘Social distancing’ is at the peak recently to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. Government, local governments, businesses, civil society, etc. are actively conducting related campaigns.
Social distancing means reducing contact between people, and includes concepts such as closing schools, telecommuting, and canceling meetings. For now, it’s a good idea that people don’t meet each other because of the nature of the virus, which is transmitted by droplets or by hand.
The social distancing was recommended by the COVID-19 Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters (CDSCHQ) on March 21, 2020. Considering COVID-19’s incubation period (14th), the CDSCHQ urge you to actively participate in intensive social distancing from March 22nd to April 5th.
This posting will show you how to practice social distancing and how Incheon Airport is participating!
Practice social distancing like this!
- Postpone or cancel all outings, meetings, dining out, events, travel, etc.
- If you have fever or respiratory symptoms (such as cough, sore throat, or muscle pain), do not go to work and rest well at home.
- Do not go out except for purchasing daily necessities, visiting to medical institutions, and commuting.
- Avoid physical contact, such as shaking hands with others, and keep a healthy distance of 2m.
- Comply personal hygiene regulations such as hand washing and cough etiquette.
- Disinfect and ventilate the surrounding environment every day
Incheon Airport will join you to end the virus
- Stopping company dinners/meetings
- Enforcement of the time difference commuting system for public transportation users
- Practicing lunch rotation by team and sitting in zigzag before eating
- Closing public facilities in the airport (e.g. gymnasium, promotion center, shower facility, etc.)
If everyone actively practices social distancing, there could be effects such as natural healing of community-infected patients or early detection without secondary transmission. Also, if the number of confirmed patients decreases to a level that the current quarantine and health care system can handle, the ‘life prevention’ system, in harmony with daily life and economic activities, can be implemented.
But do not forget that ‘social distancing is not ‘emotional distancing’, but ‘physical distancing’. We need to ask each other about our daily lives, talk about trivial things, and empathize at times like this. We hope you maintain a healthy distance, but overcome this period with warm attention and support.
