Coronavirus - General Information
The government has provided multiple resources for procedures to help protect and stem the pandemic.
These can be found here:
Our staff have been instructed and given all materials available to disinfect and protect themselves.
However, we wanted to make clear a few of the elements that are a recurring theme in this advice from the NHS are clear to all residents.
- Regularly clean your hands a minimum of 20 seconds wash is necessary.
- Stay at Home wherever possible. This includes staying out of the communal areas of your property as much as possible.
- Social Distancing – maintain at least 2 metres from other people. The virus spreads primarily by human to human contact.
- Where possible wear gloves and a face mask. Guidance on face masks and gloves is available online. However, the main principle is to avoid over using these products and to dispose/exchange them per the guidance for the product.
- Dont touch your face. This includes not touching your hair or head.
There is limited advice related to efficacy of mouth wash and other ways to avoid allowing the virus into your lungs. We have seen an interview with a doctor who stated that this could help, however, this was warned to only help kill things currently in the mouth and throat and not a solution.
General advice is to maintain excellent personal hygiene and to use good judgement.
There seems to also be a trend of spitting which we can only assume is related to unofficial advice. This could be quite dangerous as the virus is mostly transmitted through saliva during talking, hence the advice to socially distance.
We hope that this information helps anyone who may read it.
As ever we wish you all the best in this time.
