Centre News

The Trustees have made a decision to keep the centre shut for at least another week (23-27 March). Please keep checking facebook or the blog for further updates. Sue is also checking emails ms.therapy@btconnect.com    Keep safe everyone.

Centre Urgent News!!!


We are highly suspicious that someone who has attended the centre has clovid 19 virus.  It has therefore been decided by the Chair that we have to shut for the rest of this week.   Sue will be contacting everyone who has been in the centre in the last 2 weeks to see if they have any symptoms.  If there are none, we will be open again on Tuesday 24th March.  If anyone does have symptoms we will be shut for a further week, with a view to re-opening again on 30th March.


PLEASE LET THE CENTRE KNOW BY EMAIL (ms.therapy@btconnect.com) URGENTLY IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS AND YOU HAVE BEEN TO THE CENTRE WITHIN THE LAST 2 WEEKS.  REMEMBER – EMAIL NOT PHONE.
I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus

Oxfordshire MS Therapy Centre

Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus

Information Sheet

  • Coronavirus is a virus similar to the flu virus, which has the same symptoms and effects & spreads the same way.
  • Our Centre users are generally more vulnerable to developing a more serious level of symptoms, therefore, prevention is more important.
  • Coronavirus is a droplet infection, and
  • the source of the infection is from a cough/sneeze, therefore catch all coughs & sneezes (in a paper hanky or sleeve etc), and immediately bin or wash
  • the droplets quickly settle onto the surfaces below, therefore:
  • hold your breath (if you can) for a while if someone coughs or sneezes to let the droplets fall
  • regularly wash surfaces to prevent picking the virus up on hands
  • the virus gets on your hands, therefore:
  • regularly wash hands after touching surfaces
  • learn not to touch your face with your hands, thus transferring the virus to mouth & nose
  • Wash hands for 20 seconds (sing Happy Birthday twice!) with soap & water concentrating on wrists, between the fingers and around rings.
  • Soap & water are just as good as hand gels, detergents, antiseptics – in fact, if available soap & water is better as it actually washes and not just kills the virus, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t a place for hand gels.
  • Clean hands on arrival at the centre, thus preventing the virus coming into the centre (gel is provided as easier on arrival).
  • Sign & symptoms – the same as flu and normally starts with a raised temperature & dry cough.
  • If you get symptoms – call 111 and isolate yourself.
  • Do not come to the centre if you think you may have been exposed to the virus.

Coronavirus

Coronavirus Public Information: Please follow all guidance being provided by HM Government and NHS regarding the containment of the virus.

The news is changing rapidly, please keep up to date with the national and local developments.

At the Centre we have provided additional hand sanitisers, tissues, waste bins, and displayed posters reminding people to regularly wash their hands along with the “Catch it, Kill it, Bin it” message.

If you are feeling unwell, or are in any doubt, please do not attend the Centre and follow the advice on the NHS 111 website or by calling the NHS 111 Helpline.
