• napkins, toilet paper, paper towels, scraps of paper in trash cans in hotel rooms and toilets;

• Shards of glass, blades, which were cut by an infected person;

• Improper first aid in case of injury to a guest or employee.

To protect against such diseases, it is recommended:

• Cover cuts, scratches and other open wounds with adhesive tape during operation;

• Use extreme caution with sharp, pricking, cutting objects;

• Use personal protective equipment, i.e. protective equipment that prevents the infection carriers from entering the eyes, mouth and the body through clothing (rubber gloves, gowns, facial masks, goggles, mouth protection);
