Rules to follow in order to prevent COVID-19

WHO strongly recommends that you wash your hands and do not touch your face when using cash for payments.
WHO does not make strict recommendations that cash should not be used, but in theory, cash can also be a channel for transmitting viruses. Viruses remain active on both paper and plastic for some time. According to who, the life span of the coronavirus on paper is 3-4 days, on plastic - up to 9 days. Banknotes issued to credit organizations are kept in the Bank of Russia for at least 14 days from the date of receipt. Thus, credit organizations receive "clean" banknotes. But not all banknotes go to banks immediately. When paying for purchases with a card, you also need to take precautions when entering pin codes. Contactless payments are the most secure.

What you can do to stay healthy. Whether you’re at home or traveling, the WHO recommends practicing good hygiene to protect yourself against infection — by washing your hands frequently with soap or alcohol-based sanitizer, maintaining the distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing, and avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Don't forget to wipe your phones/smartphones with disinfectants. If you become sick, please seek medical attention quickly.
