Bug buddies

By Adrian 30 Aug 2021

Get yourself a bug buddy!

Government guidance about coronavirus requires anyone with a cough or a fever to self-isolate for ten days. 

How would you get food, medicines, or other essential items if you had to self-isolate in your room?

Have a conversation today with your friends about being “bug buddies” for each other. If you get sick and have to self-isolate, your bug buddy will:

    • Go out to do urgent shopping for you
    • Bring any parcels to your room (leaving them outside your door)
    • Collect any food deliveries from reception for you (leaving them outside your door)
    • Keep in touch with your while you are self-isolated to make sure you're ok - maybe via phone, WhatsApp, or Messenger
