COVID-19 lockdown(s) and guidance

At MEN R US, we're finding it an ongoing battle keeping up with COVID-19. Lockdowns and social distancing guidance continues to be muddled with politicians and public health officials seemingly at odds, more often than not. So, we continue to social distance when/ wherever we are, wear masks when out and about, and work from home. Not everybody can and we are fortunate we can do this.

It's now Autumn 2020, and this is what matters to us (something we wrote in April):

  • the COVID-19 reproduction or 'R' number
  • the take-up of COVID-19 tracker apps
  • the COVID-19 testing programme (for all)
  • the development and distribution of an effective vaccine
  • the supply and distribution of functioning Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • the health, well-being and welfare of NHS staff

As for the rest: we need a lie-down!*
