It’s been quite a couple of weeks, and the news cycle is moving at a rate that none of us have ever experienced before.
Schools closed, entertainment and leisure venues shut and football suspended, and I think we’re all feeling it.
I’m sure a lot of you are feeling frightened, a wee bit vulnerable or worried at the moment and we want to take a minute to say, look, you’re not alone, in any of this.
We are all feeling the same thing, but we think it is really important that you listen to the instructions that we’re being told about hygiene, about staying at home if you don’t feel well or staying in as much as possible. Take this moment and time to really look after yourself and look after, and help each other.
Be kind to each other, don’t stockpile – there is enough to go around and be patient.
Where you can, avoid non-essential contact with other people.
There is a fanastic team of people working day and night, in our public services, the supply chain, and an army of volunteers that has sprung up across the country to help out, to keep an element of normal in our lives.
Stick with us. We will continue to provide as much information as possible, if there is general public health info or something we think you should know about, alongside any football news – we’ll post it on the website or on our social media.
The AFC DONScast will continue every Tuesday from 8pm to keep you up to date with the latest news.
And when we do get back to our normal Saturday afternoon get together – let’s make the end of the 19/20 season a sell out.
If you’re looking for health information go to nhsinform.scot. A free helpline has also been setup for people who do not have symptoms but are looking for general advice, the number is 0800 028 2816.
For the latest advice and guidance, go to the Scottish Government coronavirus website or visit your local authorities website.
Look after yourselves, stay safe and stand free.
