Coronavirus COVID-19 Update from our Chief ExecutiveMarch 18, 2020 10:58 am
Last updated Monday 30 March 2020
The coronavirus outbreak is expected to affect many more people in the coming weeks. iSightCornwall wants to make sure that all our members, volunteers and people who use our services are protected as much as possible.
We know that older people and those with a health condition are especially vulnerable to this virus. For this reason, we have suspended all our face-to-face services, including low vision clinics, for the time being.
This also means that no club meetings are taking place at the moment.
The Sight Centre will be closed to the public from Monday 23 March. However, we will continue to provide lots of support services over the phone and online and anyone who would like support during this period is encouraged to call us on 01872 261110.
If you have received a magnifier through our low vision service that needs replacing, you can call us for a free replacement without needing an appointment. Just call us with your name, address and details of the magnifier and we will post out a replacement.
Our online shop will remain open throughout so you can still purchase any daily living essentials that you need. Alternatively, you can phone and leave us a message and we will give you a call back.
We know that this is a worrying time for many people. Please be assured that we are here if you need us. Volunteer Cornwall have set up a scheme for people who are isolated and need support with getting supplies like milk, bread and medication. The scheme is called Flu Friends and if you would like to know more please contact Volunteer Cornwall directly on 01872 266988.
And finally, we will continue to monitor current Government guidance and contact you again when our services resume. Together we will get through this!
