CORONA VIRUS – COVID-19
Over the coming weeks, we are asked to stay at home and only go out when necessary. It is a time when we are to practice social distancing and observe other socially responsible behaviour. However it is also a time when we need to keep in touch, particularly with those who are vulnerable in our community.
Getting out and about is still important but we need to heed the advice of the professionals – avoid close contact with others, keep a distance of 6’ from others and avoid an area if it looks very busy.
Thank you to those who are looking out for others, to all frontline workers, the medical and caring professionals and essential shops, many of whom are under pressure in dealing with increased demands.
