Leaflet prepared by Genetic Alliance

People living with rare conditions have been placed under immense pressure by the Covid-19
pandemic. Access to appropriate support, information, care and treatments has become more
difficult and levels of social isolation have been increased.
In this report, we present findings from the EURORDIS Rare Barometer Covid-19 Experience Survey,
and from our weekly community meetings during the months of April, May and June 2020.

Face Coverings

sock maskThe English government is advising that members of the public should consider wearing a face covering to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
What the government say 'They may be beneficial in places where it is hard to follow maintain social distancing measures. This applies when using public transport, such as trains, buses and metro systems, or when visiting shops.

They do not need to be worn outdoors, while exercising, in schools, in workplaces such as offices and retail, by those who may find them difficult to wear, such as children under two or primary aged children who cannot use them without assistance, or those who may have problems breathing while wearing a face covering'
