COVID-19 National Day of Reflection

COVID-19 National Day of Reflection

COVID-19 National Day of Reflection

On 23rd March we will be turning the Social Media channels for both Accessible Wales and Accessible News yellow to reflect on the year that has passed since the national lockdown.
 
The last year has seen utter devastation unfold in ways that the world was not prepared for. However, it is important to remember that from the darkness comes light; new friendships were born, a respect for our much loved NHS was strengthened and new challenges were met.
 
Join us by lighting a candle, wearing yellow or placing a yellow light on your doorstep, alternatively you can put a yellow heart in your window.

Accessible Wales is supporting the 2m social distancing rule.  It is important that everyone maintains the key principals to keep the transition of the virus down.  That is why we have added the NHS Distance Aware badge to our website, our marketing and placed posters up in our office.

The important measures you need to carry out to help to stop the spread of this virus are:

  • Keep socially distant (2 metres or 6.5 feet away
  • Wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds regularly using soap and water. Use antibacterial gel where that is not possible.
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • Work from home if possible
  • Avoid using public transport
  • Wear facemasks indoors in public places or outdoors in crowded areas. There are some people who will be exempt from wearing facemasks you can visit this page on the Public Health Wales website to find out if you qualify.

With cases increases and winter on the horizon it is vitally important that we do all we can to ensure that we look after our health and the health of our friends and family.

At the start of the pandemic we uploaded lots of useful links to our sister website Accessible News, pop over there to check out if any of those links would be useful to you.
