The last six months have been unprecedented, challenging times. As a Bailiwick, we have done a great job – but this is a marathon, not a sprint.
We are enjoying freedoms that other countries can only dream of. If we want to keep it that way, we all need to play our part, especially as the longer nights begin to draw in, and we reach for our thermals.
As cases dwindled, and we reached zero active cases, we started venturing out of our homes, back to work and school.
In our Bailiwick Bubble, we soon stopped being thankful and started moaning about all the things we moaned about before. Things that those outside of Guernsey would be grateful to have to moan about.
We have shown the world what small communities are all about - team work. But now is not the time to be complacent.
If you are ill, please don’t go to work – and to managers and bosses, please support those who are poorly by, where possible, allowing employees to work from home. We know and understand that this isn’t always possible, but if you can, then please do.
If you are a business, please keep hand sanitiser at your doors and on your counters. Please regularly wipe down counters and tables.
It’s good practice to respect personal space, where possible, to wash our hands and to stay home if we are ill.
Look after yourselves, look out for each other. Be kind.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. Let’s make sure that love and support is the only thing we are spreading. Not germs. Not misinformation. Not negativity.
Let’s not forget who we are, and what we are capable of when we work together. When we are Guernsey Together.
