The academy thus relies on observations made during the 2020-2021 season. No active circulation of the flu, in particular, had been observed, due to the wearing of a mask, and respect for barrier gestures.
As a reminder, after 15 weeks of consecutive declines in Guadeloupe, the number of covid cases experienced a sharp rebound between October 17 and 23.

the National Academy of Medicine recommends :

– the wearing of an FFP2 type mask in enclosed public spaces for the elderly or carriers of comorbidities, for the entourage and health professionals who are in contact with vulnerable people, and for pregnant women, even when they are up to date with their vaccinations;

– the wearing of a surgical-type mask in hospitals, dispensaries, health centers and pharmacies, and in closed spaces open to the public, such as public transport during busy periods;

– the systematic use of hydroalcoholic gel in places open to the public.
