COVID19-UPDATE as of the 16th of May 2020.
At Prospect Farm we are well aware of the essential link that exists between families and their loved ones who live with us. “Wellbeing & Peace of Mind” is our motto and standard that we live by – for participants, families and staff.
Several restrictions on travel and movement and gatherings have been relaxed. You can now go out in restricted numbers for particular purposes as long as you follow the latest rules and advice.

Our preparations regarding physical distancing & hygiene
Prospect Farm has pre-COVID-19 stocks of gloves (15,000+ pairs), masks (1,000+) and hand sanitiser (100 litres) that will last for up to 6 months without replenishing. We have a stockpile on hand of these items constantly for just such a situation as we find ourselves in at the moment. In fact we are now manufacturing our own sanitiser and masks.
Both my wife, Dr Erin O’Neill, and myself are scientists by training – Erin was previously lecturer in virology at Newcastle University – and we are acutely aware of the precautions necessary to minimise the possibility of viral infection.
Consequently all our staff are thoroughly trained and constantly prompted to:
- Exercise physical distancing with participants,
- Wear a mask and gloves when working closely (<2 metres),
- Clean hands frequently,
- Disinfect all surfaces multiple times daily,
- Record participant temperatures and their own temperatures twice daily to detect fever and assess for symptoms of cough and sore throat.
