Covid-19 A Message from the SGNS Trustees
The warnings and advice regarding the Covid-19 virus are well publicised and we should, by now, all be aware of the precautions that we need to take.
Any volunteer with even the slightest signs of infection, or who is self-isolating, should not accept any assignments.
We are also appealing for volunteers from the community to assist us, in addition to our regular SGNS volunteers.
We are dealing with an unpredictable situation and will do our best to support our clients and urge all you all to take care.
The following sources of information will be helpful to you:
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with any of the Trustees.
