Measures and rules governing library activity

Measures and rules governing library activity


According to Order No 31452 of 31 August 2002, new rules and measures are required to prevent contamination with the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus


The best way to prevent and slow the transmission of this virus is to be well informed about the virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. 

Elsevier gives us an update on this virus:
