Bay Health and Care Partners Stakeholder Update - Edition Six
22nd June 2020
Welcome to the sixth bulletin providing you with an update of what has been taking place across Morecambe Bay to tackle the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We have now been tackling the coronavirus pandemic since March across all teams in health and social care. Even though we have now passed the longest day of the year and while we are seeing some normality return to daily lives, we are still seeing huge changes to the way we used to do things.
This is most noticeable now when you go to a healthcare setting, where you will be asked to wear a face covering (if you are visiting) or a surgical mask if you are a member of staff.
We also still have visiting restrictions in place for those attending hospitals, still have children not attending school, and still have pubs and restaurants closed. So even though we have seen non-essential shops start to reopen, social distancing is still the norm. However, we are beginning to reinstate services across the system and we talk more about that in the following pages.
