(COVID-19) OFFICE CLOSURE

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR MEMBERS – COVID-19, OFFICE CLOSURE, STAFF WORKING FROM HOME

  • NNTAC cannot support strongly enough the advice given by the Government about prevention and social distance and encourages all members to exercise good hygiene practices by washing hands and cleaning surfaces with disinfectant and taking whatever preventative measures you feel may protect you from contracting the virus.
  • Diluted bleach is a strong and effective cheap disinfectant if you don’t have other commercial preparations. It is highly effective against bacteria and viruses.
  • The Government has now banned gatherings of more than 100 people for indoor activities and banned gatherings of more than 500 people for outdoor activities.
  • It must be emphasised that this worldwide pandemic can only be beaten if people take personal responsibility for their ongoing health and comply with the ongoing instructions from the Government
  • If you have the three key symptoms of Covid-19; that is if you have a fever, a cough and a sore throat you should seek medical advice and a test for the virus
  • Remember the virus is spread through tiny airborne droplets or may be picked up by touching a surface that has the virus on it.
  • The virus can live outside the body for several days or more so a very high level of caution around social distance (1-2 metres) and hygiene needs to be followed in order for you to reduce the possibility of contracting the virus
