1.        This means that no resident may leave the premises after 17:00, Friday 20 March 2020             and/or return to Sunfield on/or before Tuesday 14 April 2020.   Therefore, if you should fetch your child on Friday, he/she may only return on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.

2.        As from Friday 20 March 2020 at 17:00 no parent/family may visit a resident at Sunfield             Home Wellington’s grounds/facilities during this period thus meaning NO contact with people from outside will be allowed.
