Understanding coronavirus and Parkinson’s https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/news/understanding-coronavirus-and-parkinsons

Please note that for the time being due to the Coronavirus our group activities will not go ahead. We have received advice from Parkinson's UK as follows :

Advice on volunteer and local group events Our advice, where groups of people are coming together, is that you cancel your activities as a precaution. This includes AGMs, Working Together days, and other volunteer-led activities.

For people with Parkinson’s, there’s no increased risk of catching coronavirus. However, the advice for slowing the spread of the virus does include staying away from vulnerable individuals, such as elderly people and people with underlying health conditions. And, as volunteers you are likely to be in contact with these groups.

What does this mean for me? As a volunteer directly involved in running groups, activities and meetings, we’re asking you to cancel your activities for now. In these uncertain and unsettling times developments are evolving and we’ll keep you up to date as our advice changes
