Some reminders…

Please remember to wash your hands often and well.
This is one of the best safe guards against COVID-19 being spread in the community.

Please ensure all visitors are essential.
Do you need your cleaner to come every week, or would every second week be manageable?)

Please ensure all visitors sign in and out of the guest book, have their temperature taken and use hand sanitizer.
These safe guards are for the benefit of all in our and the wider community.

We can get through this if we pull together and do the right thing for the greater good for all…..
