HOW WE ARE RESPONDING TO THE CORONAVIRUS
Our Coronavirus, COVID-19 Policy: *** UPDATED 05/12/2020 ***
Safehaven Parrot Refuge has drawn up a policy to address the situation relating to the Coronavirus also known as COVID-19.
Now lockdown restrictions have lifted, we are able to continue with our promise of Rescuing, Rehabilitating and rehoming birds across the country. However, Safehaven Parrot Refuge takes the wellbeing of its customers, ACO, Trustees and Safehousers very seriously and wants to ensure that all steps are being taken to minimise the risk to all concerned.
Safehaven is taking the following precautions and requires all Area Co-ordinators (ACO), Trustees, Safehouse and other personnel involved with the charity to read and follow the guidance below.
Read and understand the guidance provided by the UK Chief Medical Officer and the World Health Organisation and you are taking appropriate actions to ensure you are compliant with that guidance.
You will notify Safehaven’s Trustees if you have visited or plan to visit an affected area. Any Trustee, ACO, Safehouser or other persons associated with the charity – other than those solely long-term fostering a bird from the charity – who has visited an affected area is not to visit any Safehaven site or meet with prospective or actual customers until after the self-isolation period.
Should you display symptoms of COVID-19, you will self-isolate in line with government guidelines and notify Safehaven Trustees immediately.
Whilst on the premises of any home or site, you will follow all government, Safehaven and customer guidance regarding COVID-19 and comply with any additional requirements either the charity or customer themselves may determine as necessary.
If after meeting a member of our team, whether that is to collect or drop-off a bird, you will inform Safehaven Trustees immediately if you are diagnosed with COVID-19 - and our team is to do the same if it is vice versa.
