EXECUTIVE PROTECTION SERVICES IN FRANCE DURING THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK 

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

As stated on the French government website (https://www.gouvernement.fr/info-coronavirus):

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses which cause diseases ranging from a simple cold (some seasonal viruses are coronaviruses) to more severe pathologies such as MERS-CoV or SARS. The virus identified in January 2020 in China is a new coronavirus, called SARS-CoV-2. The disease caused by this coronavirus has been named COVID-19 by the World Health Organization – WHO. Since March 11, 2020, WHO has described the global situation of COVID-19 as a pandemic.

The main symptoms are fever or feeling of fever and cough. Sudden loss of smell without nasal blockage and complete loss of taste are also symptoms that have been observed in patients. In people developing more severe forms, there are breathing difficulties, which can lead to hospitalization in intensive care and death.

The disease is spread by droplets (projected secretions that are invisible during discussion, sneezing or coughing). It is therefore considered that close contact with a sick person is necessary to transmit the disease: same place of life, direct contact within one meter during a discussion, a cough, a sneeze or in absence of protective measures. One of the other preferred vectors for the transmission of the virus is contact with unwashed hands contaminated with droplets.

Facing an exceptional health crisis.

In order to cope with an unprecedented sanitary crisis, the President of the French Republic Mr. Emmanuel Macron decided on March 16th, 2020, to take measures to reduce contacts and travels to their absolute minimum. Thus, a general confinement has been put in place throughout France since March 17th, to fight against the current outbreak of COVID-19.

However, most activities of the front line private security professionals cannot be organized in the form of telework and their travels are often essential and cannot be deferred in time. Below is a summary of the main preventive measures to deal with the coronavirus disease in France, when a strict confinement is not an option.

Social distancing:
– is a measure to distance individuals from each other
– maintain a distance of at least one meter between people
– avoid gatherings, limit travels and contacts

Use of barrier gestures:
– wash your hands very regularly
– cough or sneeze into your elbow
– use disposable tissues
– greet without shaking hands, without kissing and hugs
– avoid to bring your hand to your face 

Be aware :
– the virus can be spread by people who do not show symptoms
– misuse of protective masks and disposable gloves can lead to a false sense of security
– some anti-inflammatory drugs may be a factor in worsening the infection
– in case of breathing difficulties and other serious symptoms, contact 15 immediately
– in case of doubt, contact your general practitioner

Why it matters:
– the virus is mainly spread by the projection of droplets (coughing and sneezing)
– avoiding travels and prolonged contacts slows the spread of COVID-19
– limiting the spread of the virus preserves the essential resources of the health services
