WPM has adopted best practices to help prevent the spread of Covid-19

With the increased spread of Covid-19 Winters Property Management has adopted best practices as per HSE recommendations to prevent infection spread.

Wash hands properly and regularly

  • After coughing or sneezing
  • After toilet use
  • Before eating
  • If in contact with a sick person, especially those with respiratory symptoms

Cover mouth when coughing and sneezing

  • Cover your nose and mouth with disposable tissues
  • If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your arm or sleeve (not hand)
  • Put used tissues into a sealed bin
  • Wash your hands

What to do if you think you’re at risk of Covid-19 (Coronavirus)?

If you are not feeling well, check if you have symptoms of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). These are fever (high temperature), cough or difficulty breathing.

  • If you do have symptoms of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), you should phone your doctor or emergency department (ED) immediately.
  • Do not visit a doctor or ED – phone them first. This is so you do not accidentally put other people at risk. If you do not have a doctor, phone 112 or 999.
  • Tell them about your symptoms. Let them know you have been to a country or region with a spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
  • If your doctor thinks that you need to be tested, they will tell you where the test will be done. They will also tell you when to expect results.
  • Avoid contact with other people by self-isolating.

We ask anyone who thinks they may have come into contact with the virus to take appropriate steps including self-isolation and adopt their meeting schedule accordingly.
