Since the beginning of 2020, our agenda has been busy with an epidemic that threatens humanity globally and pandemia. Expanding to all over the world from China, COVID-19, a species of virus that the world of medicine and science has never encountered before, has stunned the world. As infection cases emerged in other countries, following China, many precautions and restrictions were imposed by administrators and health authorities around the world to prevent its expansion. These restrictions are the mandatory use of masks, shut down of public spaces such as shopping malls, cafeterias, parks, transition to online education and work system at home, restrictions imposed on travel, 1.5 meters distance rule in public spaces and curfews.
Being one of the countries where Coronavirus leaked the latest, Turkey has become an exemplary case in terms of the precautions taken before the expansion of epidemia, experience and equipment in the field of health, and the management of the situation with warnings of state officials, especially of The Republic of Turkey Ministry of Health. Making verbal and written warnings about the use of masks, staying at home, paying attention to the hygiene and social rules, The Republic of Turkey Ministry of Health provides transparent circulation of information about daily tests, cases, recovered patients and mortality rates.
Steps about the stretch of restrictions have been taken with the reduction of cases day by day and the positive course of pandemia. First of all, citizens over 65 years of age, children and young people who were on curfew, have been allowed to go out on certain days and hours of the week. Following that, some shopping malls and offices, taxis, and some of tradesmen have been allowed to start their business operations. Of course, all these permissions are implemented within the framework of the set of health measures and flexible restriction rules. As international flights start on June 10th, we would like to draw attention to the general rules highlighted by The Republic of Turkey Ministry of Health for international students who will travel to Turkey.
We would like you to review some of the rules that should be considered before planning your flight:
It is very important that you follow the rules for social life in the absence of any cases and apply the 14-day quarantine process after entering Turkey.
You should not leave the house as much as possible except in mandatory circumstances. You should wear a mask and pay attention to the 1.5 meter social distance rule in all circumstances.
If you go to shopping malls, you should pay attention to the use of masks and social distance and not stay in the mall for more than 3 hours.
Above all, remember to wash your hands with water and soap on a regular basis, and use antiseptic disinfectants in cases you do not have access to water and soap.
