Housekeeping Notices

  • As some of you will be all too painfully aware it is grass pollen season and this means a seasonal increase in asthma and hay fever. More than ever before, this year it is important to manage these conditions because they can produce symptoms that are similar to COVID-19, symptoms such as runny nose, cough or shortness of breath. While good management can help prevent these, it is critical to get tested for coronavirus if these are different to your usual symptoms. Some helpful websites include:
  • For your well being and for all at Hester Canterbury, before and after reading the communal newspapers please use the hand sanitizer available.
  • Small but important actions like these help to keep the Hester Canterbury community safe, your diligence concerning such tasks is much appreciated by all.
