BBS Coronavirus Update

California Needs You To Stay At Home

The Governor of California has ordered all individuals in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence beginning 19 March.

What does this mean for us?

This means it is our turn to share in the responsibility of getting ahead of the Coronavirus and help save lives.

How you can help:

  1. Stay home except for essential outings such as medical appointments, groceries and only urgent errands
  2. Clean your hands and disinfect common areas often. Turns out we all need a reminder on how to properly wash our hands
  3. The BBS is here for British Citizens in dire need

Our partners at the British Consulate General work to support all British nationals and they can be contacted 24/7. Useful telephone numbers:

  • British Consulate General San Francisco : +1.415.617.1300
  • British Consulate General Los Angeles: +1.310.789.0031

If you know of a British national who has been impacted by the virus please make us aware by email or tel: +1.415.421.7195 as we may be able to offer some type of compassionate assistance.

Our hearts go out to those families, friends, and communities that have been directly impacted by the virus. Be safe, stay clean and stay home.
