Wearing a face covering lowers the risk of spreading Covid-19 to others through speaking and coughing, new research suggests. Speaking and coughing without face protection exposes people nearby to droplets carrying the virus that could otherwise be stopped by wearing a mask, according to the study. Researchers found someone standing two metres from a coughing person with no mask is exposed to 10,000 times more droplets than someone half a metre from someone coughing and wearing a covering. ‘Therefore, wearing a face mask can really make a difference’ and we have a duty to protect other people as well ourselves.
The local film ‘You Are My Sunshine’ that was shot at our Mindful Gifts CIC shop in Darlsaton last year is now being edited. We can recognise our living room but a lot of the ornaments and furniture have now been sold. However, we’ve got loads more in now to look at. Can’t wait for this amazing film to come to our screens soon!
You are never to old to volunteer! Ursula, aged 94, regularly comes to visit us at our Mindful Gifts Shop in Darlaston and she loves to helps us by polishing the brass or bringing dust covered ornaments back to life. Our shop looks spick and span now!
