WY-FI Project

West Yorkshire – Finding Independence | Supporting people with multiple needs

COVID-19

We are making provisions to ensure that WY-FI beneficiaries can continue to receive the best care and support possible during this worrying time.

The health of our beneficiaries, our staff and peer mentors remains our top priority. To help reduce the spread of the virus, we may need to reduce some of what we offer, or carry out appointments remotely where we can.

We will do our very best to keep our essential services running. We are in regular contact with all our beneficiaries to support them during this period.

We’ll be updating this page as the situation evolves.

What do I do if I think I have COVID-19?

If you develop a new continuous cough or a high temperature, then you need to self-isolate for seven days.

If you are well but are living with others who have developed symptoms, then you should stay at home from 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms. If you continue to feel unwell or get worse then contact NHS 111 (111.nhs.uk/covid-19).

Please visit the NHS website for more information.

How can I reduce the risk of getting COVID-19?

Wash hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water (or alcohol gel when unavailable). Avoid touching your face and sneeze/cough into your elbow or cover your mouth/nose with a tissue which must be put in the bin straight away. Regularly clean things like your phone that are frequently touched.
