Covid 19

Unfortunately, the pandemic is not over.  Whilst the Government regulations have now been relaxed, the virus is still with us.  There are things we can all do to help reduce the possibility of catching and passing on the virus.

We are at greatest risk of catching the virus when we are in close physical contact with someone who is already infected with the virus. When someone with COVID-19 breathes, speaks, coughs or sneezes, they release small particles that contain the virus which causes the infection. These particles can be breathed in or can come into contact with the eyes, nose, or mouth. The particles can also land on surfaces and be passed from person to person via touch.

Unfortunately, individuals with the virus may not be aware they are infected and we cannot tell, just by looking, who is infected.

There are a number of things that we can all do to reduce the risk of both infection and transmission.

  1. Get vaccinated.
  2. Let fresh air in if meeting others indoors.
  3. Practise good hygiene:
    1. wash your hands
    1. cover your coughs and sneezes
    1. clean your surroundings frequently
  4. Wear a face covering or a face mask.
