If you can keep your head... (update 1)

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you. (If - by Rudyard Kipling)
See the link at the very top of the page or drop-down for the East Dulwich COVID-19 Area on the forum
Update: 22nd March
The section's working well, I think.
I need a concise list of help given or where assistance required that I can direct people to, or replicate on the forum.
I make decisions about some posts which doesn't make me popular.
Yes, some topics are important and are to raise awareness about x, y and z but the forum is more tactical right now so I'm removing some noise. It may be your comment or your thought that x, y or z is important so please don't be offended if it's moved/removed.
I can and do change my mind, and I do make mistakes. Please help let me know what's best for the community and the Health Staff that look after them.
Please don't come into contact with other people, just see how fast it is spreading. My parents are in the vulnerable group and I don't want them to die early because you got it from a friend, then gave it to your mum, who left it in the Post Office etc.
Blimey, it's all going a bit crazy isn't it. We're struggling to keep the forum slick so...
We will be stricter on moving messages to different sections, especially business ones to the business section. There seem to be a lot of repeat posts, so sorry but some posts will be moved or removed. We can't have a new post for each shop/restaurant/cinema that closes.
Trolls will be banned without warning. Unnecessary opinions on facts may be removed e.g. "Hey everyone, shop x now has toilet roll" -> "Typical capitalist shops.. rant rant rant". This helps keep the forum fun and useful.
If you have a good idea of how the forum can help reduce the impact of armageddon let us know. We can't reply to all messages but will read them all. We're happy to have one thread that has factual, useful info with links to other resources e.g. WhatsApp groups, helpline etc. let me know your thoughts.

We don't know how this will pan out so please bear with us.
Please wash your hands, more than you usually do.
