**** Important Coronavirus information ****

 

As of 11th March, local public health authorities have declared coronavirus as a pandemic. As all our PA’s are supporting vulnerable people across various ages, we are taking this matter very seriously and it is, as always, our priority to ensure clients safety.

 

The gov.uk website has stated that “Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and / or a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.”

 

In addition to this, the World Health Organization raised the risk of the coronavirus in the UK from moderate to high. Therefore, we have been actively monitoring the situation and we ask that all PA’s and Client’s ensure they are up to date with ever changing guidance.

 

If you need additional information please email the office at – info@sicasupport.co.uk

 

Please ensure that you are following all guidance:

 

  • Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.

 

  • To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.

 

  • Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.

 

  • Ensure any required PPE to carry out specific tasks is always used.
