- Where possible, social gatherings should be held outdoors on terraces or in gardens.
Travel should be limited to essential travel only within the same region or city where possible. Dependent on the localities rules dictated by regional government.
Students returning home for the Christmas holidays should limit social gatherings as much as possible. Before returning to family and friends to avoid spreading the virus. Once home, limit social contacts as much as possible, and observe the normal rules.
