ADINJC Update 23 June 2020

Great to have to many people on the webinar last night, both on Zoom and on Facebook.  If you missed it you can catch up here.

The website we mentioned with information on keeping your car clean and germ free is here.

And for anyone who took maternity leave during the 3 years qualifying period for SEISS the Pregnant then screwed website is the one you want.

And the link for the personal risk assessment.

If you are interested in doing an online course to help with hygiene and sanitising there are two we have tried:

From BBC News:

The 2.2 million people who have been self-isolating in England during the pandemic will no longer need to shield from 1 August.

From 6 July, they will be able to meet up to six people outdoors and form ‘support bubbles’ with other households.
The measures can be eased because infection rates are falling, the government says.
From the beginning of August, that shielding advice is to be completely relaxed.
The NHS will keep the shielded list, in case more advice needs to give to this group in future.

Northern Ireland has already said people will no longer need to shield from 31 July.
But officials say this pausing of the advice will only happen if the rate of community transmission remains low.
People who are shielding and living alone in Northern Ireland will also be able to form a support bubble from 6 July with one other household.
Until then, people shielding across the UK are advised to stay at home as much as possible and to practise social distancing when they go outside.

In Scotland, the advice applies to around 180,000 people and is in place until at least 31 July.

Meanwhile in Wales, almost 130,000 people are shielding and the current guidance runs until at least 16 August.
