Advice about Corona Virus

March 6th, 2020

The safety and wellbeing of our staff and community remains our number one priority. We are continuing to monitor the situation and advice about Covid-19. 
To ensure that our team and community stay safe during this time WECIL are not allowing any external visitors to the offices for two weeks. We are also cancelling all home visits for two weeks to prevent any venerable citizens from exposure to the virus. We will however continue to provide over the phone support to our clients. If you need to drop off timesheets to the office then please leave your timesheet in the box that will be clearly labeled outside of the office. 

We will continue to update you with further actions as soon as we have the information available. Please be advised that we will be reviewing the situation daily and updating this page accordingly.

What is coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. There are several known coronaviruses that infect people and usually only cause mild respiratory disease, such as the common cold. This coronavirus, first identified in Wuhan in China, is a new coronavirus that differs from these.

What’s the best way to prevent the spread of covid-19?

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser. This is particularly important after taking public transport.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home and work environment.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.



There are no upcoming events.
