Simmy's Helping Hands Closed

COVID-19 NEWSLETTER - March 2020

Following last night’s decision by the Government to close and stop all non-essential services and retail stores, all of our Services are now closed, with reopening dates to be confirmed as we navigate the weeks ahead together. We will continue to stay in touch through our Newsletters if you are subscribed and our website.

Finally, we would again like to thank you for your support for our still new business, during what is clearly a very challenging and uncertain time for us all. We are committed to protecting our consultants and clients as well as our wider community. We will be in touch again soon with further updates. In the meantime, stay well, stay blessed and look after each other.

Social distancing measures are steps you can take to reduce social interaction between people. This will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).

They are to:

1. Avoid contact with someone who is displaying symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). These symptoms include high temperature and/or new and continuous cough.

2. Avoid non-essential use of public transport when possible.

3. Work from home, where possible. Your employer should support you to do this. Please refer to employer guidance for more information.

4. Avoid large and small gatherings in public spaces, noting that pubs, restaurants, leisure centres and similar venues are currently shut as infections spread easily in closed spaces where people gather together.

5. Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media.

7. Use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services.

Everyone should be trying to follow these measures as much as is practicable.

We strongly advise you to follow the above measures as much as you can and to significantly limit your face-to-face interaction with friends and family if possible, particularly if you:

  • are over 70

  • have an underlying health condition

  • are pregnant

This advice is likely to be in place for some weeks.

Coronavirus Information

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Clean your hands often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds - especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 70% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Stay at Home & Avoid close contact

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for those who are high risks.
