THINK OF OUR POSTIES!
Most of us are all getting used to a new life tucked up at home, and a lot of us are spending more time in front of our screens. It is very tempting, when we can’t get out to the shops, to order stuff online. Please remember, though, that every order we make needs the attention of staff in some warehouse or other and a whole network of couriers including our own Tiree posties and delivery drivers. Every time a packet or box is handled and delivered to your door, there is a chance that it picks up the virus. We know that the virus can survive on cardboard for up to 24 hours. In the present circumstances, we depend more than ever on online shopping, but please think of all the people working in the supply chain. Don’t click unless you really need to!
