At Simmy’s Helping Hands, our first priority is the safety and peace of mind of both our clients and our consultants. We take the trust you place in us very seriously.We are also very mindful, in these stressful times, that everyone, is concerned for themselves and their loved ones. This applies to both clients and consultants. In light of this, we wanted to share with you what we are doing and also what we are asking from both our clients and consultants in order to protect our loved ones, help people make the best decisions and to try and ease their concerns.We would like to reassure you that we are monitoring, by the hour, the advice of the relevant Government bodies - Public Health England (PHE) and NHS England.
How can you help?
We recognise that the Coronavirus has required all of us to be more mindful as we go through our regular activities.The latest advice from the UK Government is to isolate yourself and your immediate household should you show symptoms of coronavirus infection, typically a dry cough, a temperature or shortness of breath.To this end, we would request that clients and consultants keep each other, and/or us, informed if they or anyone in their household has developed any relevant symptoms or have recently been in contact with someone that has.
Consultants have been informed to check in with their clients before their next scheduled appointment so that we are all updated with the information.In the event that you have such symptoms or have been in contact with someone that has please notify us so that we can protect ourselves and our loved ones.
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.
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.
