• COVID-19 News

    Faced with the 2019 coronavirus, SINTEL is accompanying you and asks you to read the following information, instructions and instructions:


    There are simple actions to preserve your health and that of those around you:

      • Wash your hands very regularly
      • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue
      • Greeting without shaking hands
      • Avoid hugs
      • Use disposable tissues

    What is the incubation period for the disease? 

    • Incubation time: period between contamination and the appearance of the first symptoms.

    The incubation period of the COVID-19 coronavirus is usually 3 to 5 days, however it can extend up to 14 days. During this period the subject can be contagious.


    • Mainly acute respiratory infection (fever, flu-like syndrome, headache, pain in joints and muscles, cough, shortness of breath), but breathing difficulties and pulmonary complications like pneumonia are also described, as well as more severe forms.
    • Symptoms of the disease can appear after contact with a sick person, in the same place of life, in direct contact within a meter during a cough, sneeze or discussion in the absence of protective measures. One of the preferred vectors for the transmission of the virus is contact with unwashed hands.

    For people in or coming back from an area where the virus is circulating

    • Monitor your temperature twice a day;
    • Watch for the appearance of symptoms of respiratory infection (cough, difficulty in breathing, etc.);
    • Wash your hands regularly or use a hydro-alcoholic solution;
    • Avoid all contact with fragile people (pregnant women, chronically ill, elderly people, etc.);
    • Avoid frequenting places where there are vulnerable people (hospitals, maternity hospitals, accommodation facilities for the elderly, etc.);
    • Avoid any non-essential outing (large gatherings, restaurants, cinema, etc.);

    If you are considered a contact case in France

    • The health authorities assess with you your exposure and your risk of contamination and provide you with information on the illness due to the virus and on the monitoring system. The purpose of an initial examination is to verify that you have not been contaminated. In the event of symptoms, a diagnosis will be made to quickly offer you the best possible care.


    A/ If you show symptoms (or one of your relatives) without having confirmed contamination: take the minimum protection measures indicated by the medical services.

    B/ Call 15, in accordance with ministerial instructions: do not go to a hospital or a doctor to avoid contracting or spreading the coronavirus.
    The test is carried out only in case of suspicion of the disease, validated by the SAMU and by a referent infectious disease specialist. This is a specific biology test for Coronavirus COVID-19.
    The time to have a result is between three and five hours.

    C/ If the coronavirus is medically confirmed, probable or proven:

    • Stay at your HOME: Exercise your right of withdrawal
    • Alert SINTEL
    • Report your situation to the user company where you are carrying out your mission so that they can take all internal decontamination and organizational measures.
