General advice for staff and participants
We would like to advise all staff and participants to take care and follow the NHS and Government guidelines. We ask our more vulnerable staff and participants (those who are aged 70 years and over, or those that have underlying long term health conditions) to be extra vigilant and take extra care.
If you feel you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 (including a high temperature (above 37.8 deg C), breathing difficulties or a new, continuous cough) or that you feel unwell then please follow the Government and NHS guidelines to self-isolate to help prevent further spread of the virus: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-advice.
Please take basic precautions to protect yourselves and others, and to delay the development of the disease. These general precautions include:
- Washing hands regularly with soap and water, or use alcohol sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if handwashing facilities are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport.
- Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough and sneeze. Put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands.
- If you show any symptoms (however mild) of COVID-19 – these include a high temperature or a new, continuous cough – they should self-isolate by staying at home for the recommended period of time.
- Avoid shaking hands.
We need to look after each other so we strongly recommend that we all follow the other Government advice that was issued yesterday:
- Avoid “non–essential” travel
- Avoid social contact
- Avoid gatherings and crowded places such as pubs, clubs and theatres
- Avoid “unnecessary” visits to friends and family in care homes
- Vulnerable groups (such as people over 70, adults who would normally have the flu vaccine, those with chronic diseases and pregnant women) should take particular care to avoid social contact.
We will be staying up to date with the latest public health advice, and we advise all our participants to do the same. This information can be found at:
NHS – https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19
Government – https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-action-plan.
We will be reviewing the situation regularly, and will remain in compliance with Government advice. If anything changes, we will notify our staff and participants as soon as possible.
