It has been a strange and scary year for most of us and, for those who have lost family and friends to COVID-19, a particularly tragic and traumatising one.
With the end of the year in sight and the holiday season looming, Coastal Kindness is spearheading an awareness campaign to encourage safe practices in our communities in an attempt to limit the spread of coronavirus during this particularly busy time.
We certainly don’t want to discourage our visitors; we simply want to make our environment as safe as possible for everyone.
We all need to be aware that COVID-19 is not taking a break these holidays. We need to wear our masks, physically distance and wash our hands as often as possible.
This doesn’t just apply to our visitors; it applies to all of us:
- Permanent residents
- Shop workers
- Business owners and
- Domestic workers
We all need to be careful and we all need to obey the rules and regulations. We’ll be putting up posters, distributing information sheets and sending out messages to remind everyone to be especially cautious at this time.
Your comments and suggestions are most welcome and if you’d like to make a financial contribution to Coastal Kindness’s awareness campaign and ongoing work that would be more than welcome too!
DID YOU KNOW?
It is a criminal offence if a driver or operator of public transport, manager or owner of a building, employer or principal, does not ensure that people entering or using their premises wear a mask. The amended regulation makes it compulsory for people to wear masks that cover their noses and mouths in public places. Click here.
