The current development of the coronavirus COVID-19 is of particular concern; the number of infections, hospital admissions and deaths is on the rise. In order to avoid a general lockdown, the Consultation Committee of 6 October 2020, after taking note of an opinion from CELEVAL, decided on a series of strictures. Respecting the six golden rules remains central to the management of the epidemic. As a reminder, these six golden rules are: Hygiene measures remain essential; Outdoor activities should be preferred whenever possible. Where necessary, rooms must be sufficiently ventilated; Extra precautions should be taken for people who belong to a risk group. With this in mind, a charter has been drawn up to help older people find their place in society in complete safety. The safety distance of 1.5 meters continues to apply, except for people who live under the same roof or between people who meet each other in the context of sustainably maintained closer contacts, for children up to and including 12 years of age. Anyone who cannot respect the safety distance must wear a mouth mask; It is imperative that everyone limit their close contacts as much as possible. By “closer contacts” we mean a contact of more than 15 minutes, without respecting the safety distance and without a mask. At this stage of the epidemic, it is recommended that each person limit themselves to close contact with no more than 3 different people (outside the household) per month. Gatherings are limited to a maximum of 4 people (excluding children under 12). Exceptions in the ministerial decree not taken into account.
