UK Government advice is changing rapidly on what steps businesses, individuals and care workers should take to tackle the spread of SARS-CoV-2, previously known as 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
In fact, advice is changing so rapidly as Coronavirus spreads across the UK that, here at Cairn Care, we want to be sure that any advice we include on our blog is not out of date by the time you are reading it.
