Coronavirus Precautions on Hum Community site

We have, since the 6th February, had set protocol on site to help minimise the potential spread of the Coronavirus.  We would like to continue community interaction as much as possible while we weather the storm.  However, the Hum house is also a home in which we desire to protect the family members who reside on site and play our part.  As such, we have in place the following;

Before entering the villa;

  • hands are to be washed with provided dettol solution before entering – this is a solution of dettol with eucalyptus and tea tree oil mixed in

Unfortunately you will not be able to enter the Hum house if you meet any of the following criteria;

  • showing any sign of sickness including; fever, cough, chronic fatigue, headache, runny nose, sore throat, pink eye, nausea or diarrhoea
  • been at any international airport after 5th February for any reason.
  • been on a cruise ship in the last five weeks
  • in an emergency department in the last five weeks (for whatever reason – even as a visitor for a non-associated illness or accident)

(Please email info@fallingapple.org.nz if you desire an exemption to any of these criteria for entry)

We recognise this is an overly cautious approach to the current situation but it is to ensure everyone feels comfortable and protected in their home and so community activities can continue.

We will be looking at moving some activities into our backyard which will allow a more open criteria for attendance, being out in the open space.

Thanks for respecting our limitations at this time.  :-)
