Covid-19 September Update

In-line with government guidance people are now permitted to have gatherings of up to 30 people outdoors. ​

Timebank has previously been restricted to meeting up to six people outdoors but due to recent government changes we will now be able to invite more of you to join us and other timebankers on our outdoor walks, social gatherings, or skill exchanges.

The risk of transmission of Covid-19 is lower outdoors than indoors – the virus survives for minutes outdoors but can live for hours on surfaces indoors. However, lower risk outdoors does not mean no risk. We all need to stay alert and take personal responsibility for maintaining a safe distance from each other and washing our hands or using hand sanitiser regularly.

If you have Covid-19 you will need to self-isolate for 14 days or if you suspect you might have Covid-19 you need to get tested and not attend any social gatherings until you have the results and been given the all clear.

Wearing a face mask outdoors is optional and we know that some people are exempt from wearing one, however if you feel safer wearing one please feel free to do so (it is still a requirement to wear a face mask in shops).

Our online socials will continue, and we look forward to seeing you all online for a good old natter. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our timebank members and friends who have joined us on our outdoor walks and online socials.

Your continued support means everything to us. Stay safe.
