As more positive news is reported about the success of our vaccination programme, we’re also being reminded about the importance of continuing to follow the current national guidance. Even if you’ve had your vaccination you still need to practice social distancing and keep hands and surfaces clean. Most of us have been using more hand sanitisers and stronger surface disinfectants for the past year, but are these still necessary?
The current government guidelines suggests we still need to keep high levels of hygiene to ensure the levels of Covid-19 remain manageable.
The vaccine is not immediately effective
It can take a few weeks for your body to develop a level of immunity so people may still be vulnerable.
We don’t know if it will reduce transmission
It is not yet known whether the vaccine can stop you catching the virus. There is also not enough evidence to suggest there is reduction in transmitting Covid-19 to others. We’re advised to act as if we were contagious, even if we’re fully vaccinated
No vaccine is 100% effective
Herd immunity has not yet been achieved, meaning there are still people who would be extremely vulnerable if they are exposed to the virus
Currently we’re seeing a number of Covid-19 mutations. These could be more transmittable and be resistant to the vaccine.
If we properly disinfect our surroundings we can keep transmission rates low and reduce the risk of mutations This can help the vaccination programme be more effective.
Our products are easy to fit into your cleaning routine.

As we approach the lifting of many restrictions we can look forward to sharing the things we’ve missed most with those we love to be with. If you need a reminder of the changes being made for the next few weeks always check the government website.
We often seeing increases in diseases according to seasonal changes. Some examples of this include the annual cycle of flu that often happens as people come together at the start of term in education environments.
his is a question we’ve all considered recently. Will things ever be the same again? Or are some of our behaviours and experiences changed forever?
