Covid 19 and Volunteers

STEPS wishes all our members and supporters a healthy time over the next few days and months.

Here is some advice from Conservation Volunteers Australia which might help:

Hand washing – The importance of washing your hands with soap and water cannot be understated. The reason this works so well is because soap dissolves the fat layer around the virus and subsequently limits it’s life.

Alcohol based hand sanitiser – These should only be used if you are unable to access soap and water in the first instance. The problem with alcohol based sanitisers are they don’t kill all bacteria.

Thanks to Wendy John for passing this on.
