THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS
Like every voluntary organisation, PDVC is responding to the current Coronavirus pandemic. The phone line in our office in Pangbourne Village Hall is still open for calls and information from 9.30 am to 11.30 am Mondays to Fridays Hall. As most medical appointments have been cancelled there are only a limited number of jobs that can be undertaken and, as most of our drivers are over 70, it is doubtful that we will be able to take on the job anyway.
Your committee are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will make any changes to this announcement as may be required.
You should stay indoors at home and not go to clubs, pubs or other social gatherings at least for the next 14 weeks. If you have any of the symptoms of a dry cough, raised temperature (over 37.8) the you should contact the NHS line 111 you can also look at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus. You should not approach any other person within 2 metre.
