October 5th- November 3rd, 2020
From when the Clients had last attended in March 2020, the Centre’s appearance had change dramatically
New COVID-19 rules had to be adhered to and therefore changes had to be implemented: a 2-meter distance, staff were permitted to always wear masks, arrows were dotted around the Center, as well as much more.
As you can tell, CMSS had everything in place. Prior to the clients’ return, they had been acquainted with all the changes to the Center via Zoom conference, in order to diminish any troubles or concerns they had.
We were aware that a few of the clients had their concerns about returning. Some of the clients who had resumed the service spoke about their mixed feelings they had before they were due to return.
They were anxious, apprehensive, and worried but on the other hand they were also excited, content and were looking forward to reuniting with their friends and the staff.
On the 5th of October, our plans were appropriately executed, and we successfully brought back our first bubble, followed soon after by our second and third bubble.
We were very eager to set up more bubbles in January 2021, but unfortunately, due to the third lockdown, this had to put on hold until further notice.
There was light at the end of the tunnel and there will be once again :
Believe you can and you are halfway there
