Virohazard Tartan Be Aware by Steven Patrick Sim the Tartan Artisan Scotland

 

Created by Steven Patrick Sim, the tartan was inspired by his increasing anxieties over the unfolding virus pandemic.

Influenced by the universal warning colours of yellow and black, with red representing the virus, the tartan was created to act as a vivid reminder to BE AWARE of the dangers of the coronavirus, and in doing so instil - in both wearer and observer - a high state of mindfulness, not only for each others own health, but also for the most vulnerable and at risk in our neighbourhood and communities.

The tartan was created to strongly encourage vigilance as the disease spreads, and it also aims to promote the importance of health hygiene and precautions provided by the Scottish Government and health professionals.

-

Most significantly, the black in the tartan is a mark of respect to remember those sadly lost to the virus.

* The designer hopes the tartan will be received positively, with 60% of proceeds from each scarf sale being donated to NHS Scotland (in a number of capacities) to help them as they provide health care and life saving support to the Scottish public during the epidemic.

HOW TO HELP AVOID CATCHING CORONAVIRUS:

-

WASH YOUR HANDS

One of the most important things you can do to reduce the risk of infection for yourself and the people around you is to wash your hands, frequently and thoroughly, with soap and hot water. You should wash your hands more often than you would normally.

You should wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or for two rounds of the song ‘Happy Birthday’, especially when you get home after going out, before eating or handling food, and after sneezing or blowing your nose.

-

CATCH IT - KILL IT - BIN IT

You should also make sure you catch coughs or sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve – not your hands – and put used tissues in the bin. Then wash your hands.

-

AVOID TOUCHING YOUR EYES, NOSE OR MOUTH.

-

Stay at home, to reduce risks of spreading coronavirus, and when out in public practice social distancing.

-

Be aware of those who are vulnerable in your local neighbourhood, and communities... provide support wherever possible.
