Coronavirus – Latest Advice and Staying Safe
Fusion is working hard to ensure we have safe and robust plans in place to minimise any disruption should anyone come into contact with the Coronavirus. We understand that the announcement of additional cases throughout the UK may cause concern but we want to reassure everyone that we are continuing to work closely with Public Health England, the NHS and all our health and care partners to prevent further spread of the virus.
We can all play a part to reduce the outbreak of Coronavirus by keeping calm and take simple steps such as washing your hands regularly.
Symptoms of coronavirus:
- High temperature
- Dry cough
- Shortness of breath
The new Coronavirus may not show any sign of infection for many days. Most people who become infected will experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others, particularly the elderly or those with underlying health conditions.
If you experience a high temperature or a new persistent cough, the NHS advice is for you to stay at home for 7 days. If your symptoms do not improve or you find that you cannot handle your symptoms at home, then call 111 for advice and support. Do not attend your GP or hospital.
Precautions to take:
We can all do our bit to limit the spread of the virus and stay safe.
- Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and water – a good tip is to sing the ‘happy birthday’ song twice!
- Wash your hands when you get home from work, get into work or any other place.
- If water and soap are not available, a hand sanitiser gel is a good alternative.
- Follow the NHS ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ advice. If you cough or sneeze, make sure to do so into a tissue and safely dispose of the tissue after use.
- Try to avoid contact with anyone who is unwell.
- If you feel unwell yourself, stay at home – this helps to mitigate the spread of the virus to other vulnerable people.
- Try to limit touching your face including the eyes, nose and mouth areas.
Please be respectful of one and other and stay safe.
