If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that compassion and care for others is so important. We want to take a moment to say a massive thank you to all of the caregivers, nurses, doctors, and to everyone in the medical field who has sacrificed their personal time to help protect others.
With constant regulation changes, we need to do everything that we can do to protect the more vulnerable members of our community, and we have complied a list of simple things that we can all do to contribute to helping our communities and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Video calls and social media are key!
As we cannot see our loved ones in person as much, it is important to not socially isolate whilst socially distancing. Due to the new regulations in place, we need to ensure that we are following social distancing guidelines and not meeting up with people. Understandably, this is very difficult for many people, especially those who live alone. Make sure you send messages to your loved ones often, and arrange video and voice calls if possible!
If you have to go to the shops, or you find yourself using public transport, or if you find yourself in any other public social setting – you need to ensure that you are wearing a mask. Most places have mask wearing as a mandatory rule, but others are more lenient. Regardless of rules, you need to make sure that you have a mask on you, as the virus can carry no symptoms and can still be passed on to others who may be vulnerable. Even if you are healthy and do not believe that the virus could harm you, it is still important to protect others.
Make sure your mask is fully covering your nose and mouth in order to achieve the best results.
Hands, face, and social space
One of the most important things that we need to collectively do is make sure that we are washing our hands, especially if we are just about to go outside, or have just come back inside. Many shops have hand sanitizer stands at their doors to help prevent the spread of the virus, but it is always useful to carry around a hand sanitizer with you just in case a shop you enter does not have such facilities. Make sure that as soon as you get home, you wash your hands thoroughly – the NHS site has a guide on how to do this properly if you are unsure.
Note any symptoms
Do not hesitate to get a COVID test or isolate if you start developing any symptoms. These include changes to your sense of taste and / or smell, high temperatures and a new continuous cough. However, it is also important to note that it can also be symptom-less.
If anyone in your household, or anyone you have been in recent contact with has tested positive for the virus, it is vital that you also get tested and isolate as soon as you find out until you get your results. You could be unknowingly spreading the virus if you do not do so.
Keep up to date with the NHS app
The NHS app is very useful when it comes to receiving up to date advice and keeping up with the regulations. The app will tell you which tier your area is in and will provide information on what you can and can’t do whilst you are in that tier. You can also use the app to assist with ordering home tests as well in case you cannot go to a test site.
Make sure that you are staying safe during these difficult times. If you have an elderly loved one who could use some assistance during these uncertain times, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on 01322686765 or send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
