The Ministry of Health's recommendation to those responsible for evacuation sites in hotels and other places is to allow confirmed COVID-19 patients to eat separately, and preferably the seating areas should be in an open area. For the benefit of the evacuees, it is necessary to publish where to obtain masks and antigen tests, and to report to the ministry representatives about unusual morbidity in the hotel or those suffering from vomiting and diarrhea.
