To all TNF Members

TNF has received a number of concerns expressed by some local TNs about the service they provide and the Coronavirus. We have in place a 4 stepped approach. At this stage there will only be a need for Level 1.

It relates to volunteers dealing with wallets etc: -  

  • Washing your hands with soap and water is the best way of dealing with viruses.
  • Public Health England says: “The best way to protect yourself and others is: wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel (alcohol version), regularly throughout the day. [And] catch your cough or sneeze in a tissue, bin it, and wash your hands.
  • The other option if you have concerns is to wear disposable gloves Afterwards wash hands and dispose of the gloves safely.
  • While the Royal Mail continue to deliver the wallets there should not be a major concern for local TNs.

The above suggestions will be updated as and when further information is available.
