In light of the new guidelines issued by the Government a Pilton Community Group are setting up a helpline for anyone to use who is either isolating themselves or is concerned for those who are isolated. I am sure those of you who are able will be helping out your neighbours but we felt a more co-ordinated scheme might also be helpful.
We want to currently provide 2 things:
Firstly way of making sure people still have daily contact with someone over the phone to chat and see if they are ok
Secondly a way of delivering food and medicine as required.
The next issue of Roundabout gives details of the scheme, however the timescale now needs to be brought forward.
Posters will be appearing around the village detailing 2 ways of contacting the helpline, also given below.
Mobile number 0798 380 6643 which is monitored by volunteers.
Or Sue Green on 01749 890524
or Kelly Knight on 07931 509104 firstname.lastname@example.org
or our facebook page - @piltoncoronasupport
To make this successful we need some volunteers who are willing and able to collect food/medicines on other peoples behalf and deliver them to their doorstep. If you are able to help please email me on email@example.com and I will add your details to the list.
If anyone finds themselves unable to work and therefore under financial pressure please please let us know and we will arrange for food to be delivered to you.
The Government has issued specific advice on how anyone with symptoms of the Coronavirus should dispose of their personal waste such as tissues and disposable cleaning cloths.
The guidance is for anyone with symptoms, including those diagnosed with the infection who must remain at home until they are well. It also applies to people in households with someone showing symptoms that may be caused by coronavirus (a new, continuous cough and/or high temperature).
Personal waste, such as tissues and disposable cleaning cloths, should be stored securely in disposable rubbish bags. These should then be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste within your home.
This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual rubbish outside your house, which will be collected as part of the usual fortnightly collections.
Other household waste can be disposed of as normal. Full guidance for people staying at home because of confirmed or possible infection can be found on the Government’s website here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-people-with-confirmed-or-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection
This guidance is available on a dedicated SWP webpage www.somersetwaste.gov.uk/coronavirus
