Be Safe when using Connection & Calling Cards
Coronavirus is contagious. The current advice is that it can live on some surfaces for a period of time, depending on the surface. Please take every precaution to ensure you are spreading only kindness.
Wash your hands regularly and where possible use gloves.
Avoid physical contact.
Cards or other support items (shopping, medicine etc.) should be left in letterboxes or on doorsteps respectively.
Before you take neighbourly action using connection cards, only do so a) if there is no risk you have COVID19 and b) if you have thoroughly washed your hands and can ensure the card is safe to share.

Tick Box Connection Card
Introduce yourself or connect with neighbours you find difficult to meet in person with a simple connection card (a friendly message + your name and address) as an icebreaker.
Designed to be printed on A4 paper or card, or bulk printed for you to connect with your neighbours and to leave messages of support. Double-sided – ‘Every day is Neighbour Day’ for year-round use, and on the back, space for your contact number and tick offs that you’ve washed your hands and do not have COVID-19.
This brilliant “Creative Commons” card promotes kindness in times when the community connection needs to take a different approach. Wash your hands, print this, fill it out and pop in your neighbour’s letterbox. Simple.
