Suggested Guidance for Gypsy, Traveller and Liveaboard Boater Communities on Coronavirus

Posted on 17/03/20

Friends, Families and Travellers are a charity that aim to end racism and discrimination against Gypsies, Roma and Travellers, regardless of ethnicity, nationality, culture or background, whether settled or mobile, and to protect the right to pursue a nomadic way of life.

This guidance has been created by Friends, Families and Travellers with people who live on Traveller sites, on boats and roadside. This guidance will help people who live on Traveller sites, live roadside in vehicles or live on canal boats who have symptoms of coronavirus. This guidance is meant to add to current Government guidance on coronavirus, not to replace it.

Friends Family and Travellers have shared this with NHS England and Public Health England and are waiting for approval. The guidance may be updated in line with the changing situation.
