Someone has proberbly already asked, but nearly a year ago since my cancer opp and brachytherapy last June. Does that put me in any higher risk group, I'm thinking probably not. 

Thanks

Heya, 

Nope, with that information then you're in the social distancing group, not the shielding group.

Sadly, yes. Lol

But even people who are working should be following social distancing. So 2m between them and customers, try not to accept cash or if you do, sanitise your hands afterwards, etc etc. 

Then when you get home, remove all your clothes and put them in a bag, and don't touch them until the next day, then shower. After you've showered, clean everything you've touched between walking in the door and showering. 

Keep yourself safe.

Ew. 

I think it's awful that businesses are putting employees at risk like that! 

I'm afraid then it just comes down to do not touch your face or hair between hand washes, and follow the strip down procedure once you get home. 

I guess the old folks are getting their stock in ready for gardening improvements once they get their stay home letters!

Thanks, Lass, for the extra advice about clothes. It is difficult to know what to do. I’m still working at the age of 70, having had cancer 2 and half years ago, and a pulmonary embolism. I’ve also had bronchitis in the past and heart palpitations sometimes. But according to my Dr I still have to go into my work in an addictions agency. We’re no longer seeing clients but I still have to sit in an office with 10 other people at close quarters. So I’m scared.

Heya Flywing, 

Well that's rubbish! Can your job not be done from home if they gave you a works mobile and a laptop? Because the government has said that if you can work from home, you should. So your work shouldn't be making you come in, especially since you've hit the magic age of 70!

Well there you go 

Your garden centre isn't allowed to open tomorrow. That solves that!

 I'd assume that means you shouldn't go to work tomorrow either as your work isn't classed as absolutely necessary.
