Clann Aire Clondrohid Community Crèche Pre-School & After School Services Clondrohid, Macroom, Co. Cork. Tel (026) 43344: email: clannairecreche@gmail.com Date: 12/3/20 RE: COVID-19 (coronavirus) Notice of Closure of our Service Dear Parent/Guardian, As you know, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation is unprecedented and as Directed by the Taoiseach today we will close from 6pm this evening. We understand that this may complicate your own working arrangements over the coming weeks but this is a directive from Government and it must be followed. Our service is due to open again on 30th March 2020. To date, we have put into place Infection Control precautions in our service to ensure that your child is protected from the illness. We have taken the latest information from the HSE and the Health Protection Surveillance Centre and have used it to inform our measures. As a reminder I have included the following information to bear in mind at home over coming weeks. How is COVID-19 (coronavirus) spread? COVID-19 (coronavirus) is spread by coming into close contact with someone who has the virus. It can be spread by coughing or sneezing. You could also get it if you touch surfaces that have droplets of the virus on them. What can be done to prevent infection? • Frequently clean hands by using soap and water. Your children should be supported with this, we recommend washing hands for at least 20 seconds. • Practice good respiratory hygiene i.e. when coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – discard tissue immediately into a closed bin and clean hands with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water. • Maintain social distancing i.e. leave at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and other people, particularly those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth – if you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself. • Avoid eating undercooked or uncooked meat and eggs. • As this is an evolving situation, keeping an eye on the HSE COVID-19 (coronavirus) page and the Health Protection Surveillance Centre COVID-19 (coronavirus) page for up to date information. The best way for you to ensure that your child is safe is to support effective handwashing practices with your child and ensure they are followed at all times. We have encouraged these practices in Clann aire. Rest assured, that we are also keeping up to date with the most recent information and guidance from the HSE, the Health Protection Surveillance Centre, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and Early Childhood Ireland. We will stay in contact with you over the coming weeks as the situation evolves. Yours sincerely, Gobnait Kelleher /manager Kind Regards Gobnait Kelleher – Manager
