Coronavirus update @ BCWR
As the country begins to further relax the restrictions on Monday and as we head out of lockdown ,as a rescue we have had to look closely at the changes we have made and the impact this has had on us personally, professionally, physically and financially.
Over the last 16 months, we’ve had to make some big changes to the way we manage the day to day life at the rescue, and the way we help cats and kittens find their forever homes through our adoption process.
We’ve implemented some really positive changes that have made the way we work easier, safer and more secure.
Our priorities will always be providing a safe and secure environment for our cats, volunteers and visitors.
We are still running at a very much reduced volunteer capacity….. and we intend to continue with this.
We have found new ways of working with our professional partners such as our friends at Northcote Vets and other professionals.
We plan to keep these improved processes in place which will help us to make sure we are operating in the safest way possible.
We want to minimise the risks of ANY VIRUS… not just coronavirus.
Cats, volunteers and visitors all have the potential to transmit infection, and our new processes of working are proof that we are working to a ” Gold Standard” in minimising and controlling infection within our environment at the rescue.
We do really miss seeing many of our visitors in person at the rescue, and we do hope to hold some family days in the future, where you will be able to book a visit to the rescue.
There will be steps in place to make sure these can be run safely, and in accordance with government/ NHS regulations and guidelines.
Please do keep an eye on our social media for updates about these days, we will share more information when we are able to.
Please understand that not everyone can have a vaccine, and not everyone who is vaccinated is immune to catching or transmitting Covid-19. …. especially with the emerging new variants.
The safest way is to assume that everyone may have a virus.
As always, Thankyou for your continued support and understanding and thankyou for being a part of the heart that keeps BCWR beating
