19 Mar Announcement from YMG.
As I’m sure you’re aware by now, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has affected many people across the world. And, as our country continues our attempts to contain the virus, we wanted to send a quick message across to you all.
Mainly, ensure that you wash your hands, and keep away from crowds of people – as per the governments’ instructions. Lowering the risk of yourself contracting the virus ensures a lower risk of mass spreading. If we all achieve this, the situation will hopefully be resolved sooner.
If you’re aware of any individuals who are considered high-risk, do what you can to help. From calling and checking in to providing supplies if possible, every little bit helps.
Lastly, if you do need to buy supplies for yourself, we ask that you only buy what you need. Stockpiling on unnecessary items not only takes away from those who may be in dire need of them but also creates more work for those who are doing their best to supply them during this time. When possible, be sure to support your local business in whatever ways you can.
Despite the current time being a strange and somewhat scary one, this is a chance for us all to show how amazing human beings can be. By co-operating and being considerate, the world becomes a better place. Even in times like these.
Stay safe, wash your hands, and be kind.
Stay at home. Save lives.
– The YMG Team.
