Living with the COVID Emergency

Here are suggestions to help at this worrying time:-

1. Social Contact with family and friends.
Phone call and texting can keep you in contact, but face to face
video chatting where you can both talk and see each other person is
much more personal. One on one is great for private conversations,
but video group chats with family or friends can be even more
rewarding.

Video chats can be made using mobile phones, laptops and most
tablets.

Maybe your younger family members are already using one or more of
these options, if not the following Internet links demonstrate and/or
describe some of the ways you could start a group video chat.

Banking and Buying safely

This website advises you on how to do your banking safely.

Avoiding "dirty" cash
Another important recommendation is to use contactless transactions
rather than cash. Notes and coins are handled many times and Covid-19 or
other virus can live on notes and coins for several days.
China has now setup continuous sterilisation of notes.

Use “Tap and Go” card payments, to avoid handling cash for protection of
yourself and checkout operators. Some businesses are now accepting
electronic payments only, which is legal providing customers are advised
before the transaction.

When making Internet purchases eBay and Paypal can be used to provide
added security and protection. For more information click eBay-Paypal .
