For the time being, and until we are advised otherwise, it is service as usual, but we would remind all volunteers to wash their hands regularly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. And of course please encourage clients to wash their hands too. Anyone with a dry cough and fever should not visit their clients or the KASC office.
If you have recently visited an area with a higher risk of coronavirus do not visit your client for a period of 14 days following your return.
Currently these countries include Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Japan, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Tenerife – only the H10 Costa Adeje Palace Hotel, Thailand, Vietnam.

We are also planning in case there is a more significant outbreak of coronavirus, but at present we are far from implementing this.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with us in the office.
