Coronavirus – precautions

The situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to change at an alarming rate.

Coronavirus is spread through coughing, sneezing or having close contact (such as shaking hands or kissing) a person who is infected.

At Mosaic we are taking precautions to minimise the possible risk of infection.

  • Additional soap is available in the toilets and you are encouraged to wash your hands when you arrive and particularly before kiddush
  • In addition to hand washing, disposable gloves are being worn by all those connected with the preparation of food
  • If you feel unwell or are self-isolating, the Reform and Liberal services are being streamed (click the links for details) to enable you to join our services from your home
  • Please do not be offended if some congregants do not shake hands (or kiss!) during this period
  • Remember the NHS advice – catch it, bin it, kill it!

How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
