The current quarantine measures have brought changes to our lives and, of course, to the DofE programme. However, the programme does not end with the quarantine, some things change and the programme goes on without a hitch.

If you're not sure where to find true information about the disease, guides and tips on how best to protect yourself, stay healthy, and more, you can find it on a specially set up Ministry of Health website coronavirus.mzcr.cz.

If you are unsure where to find truthful information, recommendations and tips concerning staying healthy or some other information about current pandemic, you can visit special website of Ministry of health: coronavirus.mzcr.cz/en.

We hope you are well and managing to maintain your mental and physical well-being. To make it easier for you, you can join the National Centre, other DofE leaders, alumni and corporate volunteers for a six-week DofE Challenge. Find out more about it on our Facebook.

We wish you good health, lots of strength and new energy, which hopefully the warm spring weather will soon bring.

Changes in participants' activities

You are already aware that participants may temporarily (or even permanently) change their activities in individual areas due to the quarantine measures. We informed you about the details in previous article.

Now we would also like to remind you of an exception that can be used. This is the fulfilment of the area Volunteering in your own family (tutoring siblings, buying for grandparents, etc.).

Dear Leaders, Coordinators and Expeditioners,

That is why we prepared instructions on adding a new activity in ORB and put together positive stories. We hope it will inspire and cheer you up. You can find both below.

We sincerely hope that you are able to maintain your physical and mental well-being. For staying fit you can now join DofE National Centre, other leaders and Award holders for 6 weeks DofE Challenge. You can learn more about it on our Facebook Page.

We would also like to wish you health and nice spring days.
 

You probably know, that during the current state of emergency it is possible for participants to change their activity and continue with the programme from home.
We shared the detailed information in previous Special Short News.
We would also like to remind you of the exception and Volunteering section, where participants can help in their own families (shopping for grandparents, tutoring a younger sibling etc.)
 

We prepared a short document for you with instructions about adding a new activity in the desktop version of ORB app. We hope it will help you with the facilitation of changes and allow participants to continue with the programme without any difficulties.

We are glad that Award centres and participants are reacting to current situation and helping the best they can. Read the brief overview of some of them. We hope that these positive news will brighten your day.
