COVID-19 Research Project University of London

TAKE PART IN COVID-19 RESEARCH

University College London is running a study into the psychological and social effects of Covid-19 in the UK.
The results are being used to understand the effects of the virus and social distancing measures on mental health and loneliness in the UK and to inform government advice and decisions.
We’re looking for adults in UK who are happy to take part and spread the word about the study. Participation involves answering a 10-minute online survey now and then answering a shorter follow-up survey once a week whilst social isolation measures are in place.
To take part, visit https://redcap.idhs.ucl.ac.uk/surveys/?s=TTXKND8JMK

Keep in Touch – Online and Video Conferencing Possibilities

With so many of us in lock down we are looking to find ways to keep as many groups as possible finding other ways to meet.  Wine Appreciation are one of the leaders here transferring their meetings onto Skype. Pilates used Zoom video conferencing today, Women in History, Art Group 5 and Science and Philosophy are experimenting with  Zoom for their future meetings.

Please let us know if you are using any other ways of keeping in touch.

Corona Virus – Update and Cancellations

The next three monthly meetings i.e. April, May and June have been cancelled, we will update you on the fate of July nearer the time.

All national and other area meetings have been cancelled  over the same period.
Several members have asked if we have a policy on groups meeting up as regards the spread of the corona virus.

Our advice at the moment is that, until there are any specific restrictions from the government, we continue as normal, although we recognise that meetings are held at the discretion of group leaders and the members themselves.

Obviously, if you are feeling unwell and have flu-like symptoms, then please stay at home so that we minimise the risk of spreading any infection to others.

We will contact group leaders if there is any change in this.
