Face coverings: when to wear one and how to make your own

This official Gov.uk link explains what face coverings are, their role in reducing the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19), the settings in which they are recommended, and how they should be safely used and stored. This information is based on current scientific evidence (as at 14 July 2020) and is subject to change.

This information relates to the use of face coverings in public spaces where social distancing is not always possible. It is important to follow all the other government advice on coronavirus (COVID-19) including staying safe outside your home.

The evidence is clear that people should wear masks to reduce virus transmission and protect themselves, with most countries recommending the public to wear them.

La Chasse helps local community and reduces minimum order value.

Based on the Wiltshire/Dorset border, La Chasse is a specialty food distribution business with years of experience in the food industry. Normally, La Chasse provides fantastic, locally produced must-haves and high quality ingredients to the wholesale trade; including pubs, hotels and restaurants. However, as a result of Coronavirus, they’re now one of many local businesses that have taken on a new community focussed outlook.

La Chasse now offer an extensive list of products to the public

This refocus from wholesale to providing products directly to the public has enabled
La Chasse not only to help provide a much needed service to the local community during unprecedented times, but it also means that the business can continue to look after their dedicated workforce, whist supporting their own wide range of suppliers.

To make it more accessible to the local community, La Chasse have recently taken the decision to :

  • reduce the minimum order to £40.00, dependent on location,
  • include free delivery to your door, dependent on location,
  • offer 10% off on orders over £80.00

With their distinctive branded fleet of chilled vehicles, which you’ve probably seen around, La Chasse are now offering a wide range of products to the public. The full list of products (currently spanning 18 pages) is available on www.lachasselimited.co.uk . However do bear in mind that La Chasse is not a supermarket, and the products may well be more geared to wholesale caterers in terms of packing size, quantity and type, however they will be constantly updating their range as time passes.

We would be grateful if you can share this with your friends who may not have access to the internet. For the current list of other local services we are aware of, please click here.
