Advice to businesses and community centres on re-opening following Covid 19 Pandemic

GAVO Support for Organisations Re-opening Community Facilities after Lockdown

GAVO have produced some useful guidance for those who look after Community Facilities, that we hope you will find useful.

What should I do if I suspect I, or a member of my family have Coronavirus symptoms.

You should stay at home if you or a family member develops either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days. If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible. If you feel you can no longer cope with the symptoms, your condition gets worse your symptoms do not get better after 7 days then you must call 111.

More information about the Coronavirus can be found on the Public Health Wales website.
