Hygiene behaviour for courses in the technology centre

  • Up to 10 persons from different households may stay in one room
  • -> that means: 3 employees of DD and 7 course participants.
  • The contact details of the participants must be recorded with date, time and signature for tracking purposes. The documents must be kept for 3 weeks after the workshop.
  • If demonstrations are given and the participants have to come close to the lecturer's table for pursuit, everyone must wear a mouth and nose cover. Sufficient ventilation must be provided.
  • Toilets must be cleaned more often and disinfectants must be provided. A distance limit of 1,5 m must be set in front of the toilets.
  • Visibly attach a sign for "occupied" and "free" to the toilets.
  • A minimum distance of 1.5 m to other people should be maintained outside the seating areas and in the counter area.
  • At the food counter, either the rolls must be provided individually on plates or a DD employee must hand out the rolls per participant. Self-service is not allowed!
  • A directional mark must be stuck to the floor so that the passage to the ceramic kiln runs in an orderly fashion. A crowd of people less than 1.5 m apart is not permitted.
  • Nobody may sit on the dental technician places at the furnaces, otherwise the minimum distance cannot be guaranteed.
  • Eating out is allowed with 10 people from different households.
