A SPECIAL NOTICE TO FORMOSA RESIDENTS REGARDING THE COVID-19 CRISIS

These continue to be difficult times, but we are luckier than many because we have our glorious garden as a place of solace and refuge. However in the light of the evolving measures being announced by the government there need to be a few added restrictions on its use: 

 

Gatherings of more than six people are no longer allowed outside, although households and support bubbles of more than six people are exempt. Children under 12 are not exempt. The guidance is still to stay 2 metres or 6 feet away from anyone you don't live with, although if that isn't possible you can stay "1 metre plus" apart. That means doing something else to limit possible exposure, such as wearing a face mask. 

Anyone taking exercise in the garden should observe social distancing rules and move in a clockwise direction to avoid accidental contact with others. It would also help if the garden could be kept clear of any toys and other obstructions to free movement.

 

Lastly we would ask everyone to look out for any fellow residents who may be feeling lonely or isolated. If people have the time and would like to volunteer to help then they can post a note on this website. 

 

There may be other changes that the Board will need to introduce if the circumstances change still further but meanwhile the hope is that by observing government guidelines while still making the best use of this wonderful asset we can remain for the most part safe and well.
