Corona Virus Urgent update 18th March 2020
We were contacted by Norfolk County Council late yesterday afternoon advising that all day services should close by today (Wednesday).
We have had no choice but to make the difficult decision to close all Workskills / Adult Leisure and Bespoke services until further notice
So this means that from this afternoon members will be remaining at home and will not be coming out to services. NCC, in addition, have cancelled all the transport from today.
We know this will be really difficult for our members and their families.
Supported Living and outreach in people’s homes will continue as normal; we will let you know of any changes that come into force.
It goes without saying that we need to be notified of any symptoms from members or their household.
Currently, our Charity Shop and Café will remain open as normal staffed by staff – it will be closed if advice changes from government.
If you suffering extreme hardship due to the current situation, please ring to discuss in case there is anything we can do to help. Our office will be open the usual hours.
About with friends have been busily gathering as much information as possible about the impact of the Coronavirus (Covid-19). We have taken advice from trusted sources, working out how we best protect our members, our communities and our colleagues.
We are in constant contact with all relevant authorities to make sure that we continue to do everything we can.
If you have any concerns please contact us on email@example.com.
We don’t want to inundate you with emails so follow us our web site www.aboutwithfriends.co.uk
A high temperature or fever OR a new continuous cough could be signs of the Coronavirus. If you have ANY of these symptoms please visit 111 online and complete the questionnaire for Coronavirus or telephone 111 if you do not have online access. If you have ANY of these symptoms you should stay indoors, avoid close contact with other people and contact 111 for confirmatory advice. It is VERY IMPORTANT that this advice is followed.
You can quickly jump to any of our services from here.
