Good morning everyone,

We wanted to reassure you that we have been thinking of the measures that we need to put in place here at Greyfriars to protect ourselves against the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We will remain open and events continue until otherwise advised. 

However, please, please if you are diagnosed with Coronvirus , inform us by email or phone asap and do not visit the Centre.  

If you have been in contact with anyone who has been diagnosed with Coronavirus, again please do not visit the Centre but inform us.

Please self-isolate for 14days and follow current advice.

We are hoping to get supplies of antibacterial hand gel by the end of this week but are struggling to get our orders fulfilled. Please bring your own with you to the Centre and observe hand washing advice, see below…

There are general principles you can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport

  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • avoid close contact with people who are sick

  • if you feel unwell, stay at home, do not attend work or school

  • cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it

  • clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home and work environment

  • if you are worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment

  • see further information and the Public Health England Blog

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 acute respiratory disease. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus.

We will keep you updated with more information should the situation change at all.

Thank you,
