Corona Virus Advice

Coronavirus Update for the Parish of Godalming

18 March 2020

Following Church of England and Diocesan advice, all services and activities have now been suspended in the Parish of Godalming.  St Peter and St Paul's Church will remain open during the day as much and for as long as is possible.

Further information on prayer and readings will be added to the website over the next couple of days.

What can we do to minimise the chance of infection?

The Department of health has launched a new public information campaign regarding the Coronavirus but the focus is similar to the ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ campaign.

Germs can live on surfaces for hours. To protect yourself and others:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your coughs or sneezes
  • Bin the tissue and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water or use a sanitiser gel
  • Ensure good regular cleaning of surfaces lots of people touch regularly

Keep an eye on the daily updates from official sources, not the heightened concerns sometimes seen in the media. There are also posters up with basic hygiene information up on the notice board.
