Coronavirus Information

Posted on: March 19, 2020

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus, and the current strain is known as novel coronavirus.

If there’s a chance you may have coronavirus you should ‘self-isolate’ immediately, call 111 and isolate yourself from other people.

This means you should:

  • stay at home
  • not go to work, school or public areas
  • not use public transport or taxis
    ask friends, family members or delivery services for support in delivering items such as food and toiletries for you
  • try to avoid visitors to your home – it’s OK for friends, family or delivery drivers to drop off food

Advice for you and your family

The UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate. But the risk to individuals remains low.

Health professionals are working to contact anyone who has been in close contact with people who have coronavirus.

Symptoms of coronavirus

The symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature
  • shortness of breath

But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu. Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.

You can reduce your risk of getting/spreading coronavirus by:

  • washing your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water is not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

 

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

New Modular Solutions Development in Old Colwyn

Posted on: March 12, 2020

 

Building has commenced on our new modular build site in Old Colwyn. We’re constructing 8 x 1 bed pods for Cartrefi Conwy.

The team have built the frames in our factory on Anglesey and then these have been erected in just a few days onsite. We’re using the stick and panel modular system to build these homes. This is a quicker, cleaner way of building offsite. Each home will be built to a Passive House standard meaning that they are eco-friendly requiring up to 90% less heating.

We’re also delighted to welcome our 4 new modular assistants Kyle, Thomas, Carter and Jake who will be learning about Modern Methods of Construction as part of their training.

It was great to hear from Bryn Jones our lead technician talking about our carbon zero homes with BBC News
