COVID - 19 Weekly Update

Dear Friends,

We hope this newsletter finds you all well. Some good news this week with plans to begin Phase 1 of the Roadmap for reopening society scheduled to come into effect.

People are still encouraged to stay at home as much as possible, however up to four people who dont live in the same household  can meet outdoors as long as they maintain a 2 meters distance. Garden centres, hardware stores and Farmers markets can reopen as long as social distancing measures are in place. Opticians, motor and bicycle repair shops and phone repair shops are set to open also.

People over 70 or who are medically vulnerable are advised to continue to cocoon.

Finally as always staff are working remotely and can be contaced by phone or email.

Have a great weekend and stay safe from your team at Gay Project
