COVID-19 requires everyone in Albania – no matter who you are – to be united in spirit and in action. As President Meta, Prime Minister Rama, and Democratic Party Chairman Basha have all agreed, this is a time for calm, sensible action by the public and swift, responsible action by all leaders. In this respect, the Embassy will also be following WHO recommended measures for basic protective measures against COVID-19, including practicing social distancing and increasing personal hygiene measures, such as frequent handwashing. We will continue to support the efforts of the Government of Albania to lead a coordinated and transparent response that keeps all people in Albania as safe, healthy, and informed as possible.
