Covid 19 - Community Supports

The COVID-19 outbreak is a challenge for individuals and communities across Ireland. In these exceptional circumstances, all community members have a role to play in helping those who need extra support.

 

Sensible Volunteering

 

Some tips for sensible volunteering include:

 

  • Only volunteer if you are well enough to do so
  • Do not volunteer if you have travelled outside Ireland in the last 14 days
  • Always follow the HSE guidelines for hand washing, sneezing/coughing and practice social distancing

 

Advice for people receiving assistance

 

DO

  • Follow the latest HSE guidance on hand washing, sneezing/coughing and social distancing.
  • Clean any object that volunteers or others deliver to your home, if possible.

 

DON’T

  • Hug or shake hands with people who are visiting you.
  • Share objects that touch the mouth, such as bottles or cups.
  • Answer the door to someone you don’t know unless you feel comfortable doing so. If someone calls to the door from an organisation, ask to see identification. Call the organisation to check their details if you need to.
  • Let someone into your house unless you know them or it is absolutely necessary.
  • Give cash, your bank details or your credit/debit card to anyone you don’t trust.
