ESCV Statement on Coroavirus (COVID-19)

Last updated: 17th March 2020 

We would like to reassure you that East Sussex Community Voice is closely and regularly monitoring the latest advice from Public Health England regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). This is focused on minimising the risk of infection for our board, staff and volunteers as well as for partners, health professionals, service users and the public.   


We understand people’s natural concerns and are exploring how our activity may be adapted to minimise risk and to align with the decisions of others.  


As of today (17th March 2020), ESCV is postponing or cancelling all planned face-to-face engagement activity and staff will not be attending meetings until further notice, except in exceptional circumstances. We would appreciate your understanding and patience in us undertaking these steps. 


Our staff are working remotely and minimising face-to-face contact with others wherever possible. They are being asked to wash their hands regularly and thoroughly and tlimit interaction with anyone in a high-risk category, or those exhibiting any illness or symptoms of the virus.  


We are well aware of the large amount of information related to coronavirus now in the public domain, but would encourage all parties to only follow the official guidance provided by Public Health England: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-list-of-guidance 


We will update our coronavirus (COVID-19) information as and when new information becomes available.  


Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
