You may need to get medical advice if you’ve recently travelled to the UK from somewhere with a higher risk of coronavirus. As this list is continuously being updated we ask you to take responsibility for checking the various Government and NHS websites to check if the country you have returned from has a higher risk of coronavirus. If you have travelled from one of these countries listed on the government websites then please do not attend the centre or send your children to SSE. Please take immediate advice by calling the NHS 111 Service.

If you do not have access to the internet please speak to one of the centre members who will assist you. A comprehensive set of references are available at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Public Health England via the NHS and the CDC has suggested some basic good hygiene practices.

  • If you are sick, stay home, be vigilant to the symptoms of COVID-19 such as a fever and cough. It is best not to attend your Sai Centre, Sai Centre regional events, or Sai Service Projects when you are sick or not feeling well.
  • If you are sick, please wear a face mask when you are around other people or pets.
  • Be Safe and Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Or if tissue is not available, cover with your elbow. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Try to avoid international or long-distance travel while the WHO or CDC have active travel warnings, and avoid large gatherings or congregations, if possible.

Power of Prayer

It is good to remember Swami’s guidance to remain calm in all situations. We need to follow the guidance of our national and local medical and infectious disease experts as listed above. We should remember that prayers are very powerful. The Sai Gayatri mantra as well as the Gayatri mantra is being chanted by Sai devotees around the world for the welfare of humanity. Let us all be united and pray with intensity as often as possible, especially at weekly Sai Centre meetings. This is an important spiritual practice which can alleviate this global health threat due to the Coronavirus.

National and Regional Events

Postponement national and regional events till after May 2020.

Centre Activities

With large congregations and with consideration for the elderly, centres might want to reduce some activities.

More guidance may be released by the UK Government for large gatherings in the coming weeks.
