To help prevent further infection, please remember to wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.
To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue in a bin immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.
Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.
If you have shown any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) such as continuous cough and/or high temperature, please self isolate and protect others around you.

Thinking about volunteering? Here’s some great food for thought!
Volunteering has some brilliant benefits for you and for your community. Apart from helping others, volunteering is a great way to help you make friends, advance your career and learn new skills. You’ll make a valuable contribution to society and boost your own well-being along the way.
Volunteering is for anybody who wants to help others or the local community. There’s so many different ways to volunteer, from having a cup of tea with an elderly person to helping to clean a beach to admin or computer work.
That’s an easy one! Created in partnership with the Lieutenancy of Kent and KM Media Group, Kent Volunteers is simple and easy to find the right opportunity for you. Just sign up, fill in your skills and start looking! It’s equally quick and easy to join if you’re an organisation looking for volunteers.
Our new postcode search here will find the right volunteering placement for you. Don’t forget to first sign up though!
There’s no upper age limit on volunteering. Some organisations’ insurance policies will not cover you if you’re under 16 or over a certain age. Under British law, you cannot work for a profit-making organisation if you’re under 14, even if you’re not paid.
