As you will have seen in the news, the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak is currently affecting all areas of the world and is predicted to become more widespread in the UK.

Here at Connect, we are taking steps to ensure we are prepared as we can be for any disruption, however it is impossible to predict how this virus will progress or how the advice and guidance will change in the coming weeks and months.

At present there has been no change or disruption to our services, however we are asking you to inform us if you are displaying symptoms of the Coronavirus, or you have been advised to self-isolate. This is especially relevant if you have an appointment for a member of Connect staff, or our contactors to visit you.

The UK government has announced that the UK remains in a Contain phase – which is designed to try to contain the outbreak. The latest information on the virus  and the steps you can take to protect yourself is available on the NHS website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

We will continue to monitor the situation and take the necessary steps as an organisation to respond to the changing situation. The health and wellbeing of our tenants, service users and employees will remain our biggest priority throughout.

We will ensure that this page is updated with the latest information throughout.
