- The emergency room will continue to be locked, first contact is always made by phone at 535 001

- The staff at the emergency room will wear protective clothing

- There is a prohibition on visiting the emergency room. Exceptions are relatives of pediatric patients or relatives who need to be involved in nursing

- From next week visitors to the emergency room will also be received in a heated tent outside the clinic. Healthcare professionals make an assessment of what further care is needed
