Students in isolation invited to ‘Stay in & Chill’

| 27/03/2020

Students in the Cayman Islands who are currently in isolation because of the coronavirus health crisis are invited to join the private ‘Stay in & Chill’ Facebook group, which provides them with a range of free virtual activities, workshops and resources, in order to stay healthy and emotionally connected. There will be a range of live sessions taking place via Zoom or recorded sessions for students to participate in and watch.

The ‘Stay in & Chill’ Project is spearheaded by the Alex Panton Foundation (APF), in collaboration with the Health Services Authority (HSA) and the Ministry of Community of Affairs, under the instruction of Human Concerns Cluster.

The project is designed to support students who are practicing safe isolation, and the working group behind it consists of clinicians and educators.

Students can find the ‘Stay in & Chill’ group by clicking on the Facebook link below. The flyer (see below) has also been sent out to all students who are self-isolating in the designated hotels, and in government and private schools.
