Understandably, we are receiving an unprecedented number of telephone calls and emails. Since 11 March we have provided a regularly updated news article on this website. Given the huge implications for our members, their family and friends, we have created these pages as a ‘one stop’ point for information about Coronavirus. We will update this page, and the links below, regularly so please keep checking back.
STAY AT HOME Latest government advice following the Prime Minister’s statement on 10 May is that people should:
- stay at home as much as possible
- work from home if you can
- limit contact with other people
- keep your distance if you do go out (2 metres where possible)
- wash your hands regularly
CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE AT SCHOOL. All schools closed on Friday 20 March indefinitely. The earliest that a phased return of schools will start is 1 June. There are exceptions for the children of key workers and other vulnerable children, but these are exceptions not the rule.
Our branch office is closed to visitors. We are observing social distancing advice and most staff and officers are working from home. We are still taking telephone calls and responding to emails but we would prefer you to contact us using our online contact form if you can. Please also check these pages first to see if we have already answered your question(s).
