Friday 10th July: Stay Safe, Stay Connected

This Friday (10th July) at 6 PM (UK time), we’ll be talking about COVID-19. We’ve run a few sessions now on the impact of lockdown and social distancing measures on blind and partially sighted people, but up until now, we haven’t talked much about the illness itself. 


Pardy, a blind man who has recovered from a relatively severe COVID-19 infection requiring a stay in hospital, will be joining us to discuss his experiences. We’ll also be joined by Geraldine, a mobility coordinator from Ireland who has recovered from COVID-19 in the Irish healthcare system. We’re particularly interested in discussing these experiences from a blindness perspective, and our guests will be happy to answer any questions you might have. 


We understand this will be a sensitive or difficult topic to discuss for many of our subscribers. As with all our meetings, this call will be run in line with our moderation policy. You can find more information at https://www.braillists.org/staysafe/moderation/
