VACCINATE AGAINST FLU
For those who have not yet been vaccinated against the flu, use the flu vaccine as quickly as possible, in order to make the diagnosis and management of a suspected case easier.

In the event of national gatherings or international events also authorized abroad, always provide the presence of a Federation Doctor, who can evaluate all participants clinically, at a preventive level, whilst identifying any individuals at risk and adopting the more suitable isolation measures that follow appropriate management procedures according to the guidelines of the Ministry of Health.
Medical staff must carefully monitor the countries to which they are heading to or from, according to the indications of the Ministry of Health. FMSI has set up a direct link and specific e-mail addresses for all the Federal Doctors, who are the reference point for the clubs and athletes, for a more effective coordination of information thanks to the direct line between the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Sport, Coni and FMSI.
Avoid award ceremonies or receiving awards or other forms of contact with the public (e.g. clubs or various events)

Use a single microphone in interviews to be disinfected each time (therefore not various microphones held by the journalist)
