COVID-19 UPDATE

Gisteren heeft De Belgische Veiligheidsraad groen licht gegeven aan winkels om hun deuren te openen op 11 mei. Consouling Store zal echter nu nog niet open gaan. De belangrijkste reden is dat onze gezinssituatie dit haast onmogelijk maakt. Wij geven momenteel thuis les aan onze twee dochters en zij verdienen alle aandacht van mama en papa.
Daarom opent Consouling Store voorlopig nog niet. Wat wel zal kunnen:
- je kan nog steeds terecht op onze webshop (met verzending of local pick-up)
- Je kan op afspraak wat je kocht komen afhalen (spreek af met Mike, dat kan via de Store-pagina)
- In Gent leveren we voorlopig nog steeds aan huis

We werken aan een reservatiesysteem om binnenkort te komen winkelen op afspraak, dit volgens de huidige richtlijnen van de overheid (voor max. een half uur). Meer informatie hierover volgt gauw.

Het laatste dat we willen is dat klanten in een rijtje moeten wachten op het trottoir. Zo lijkt het ons leuker en aangenamer dat wanneer je wil komen winkelen, je ook zeker bent dat je binnen kan. Wij zorgen ervoor dat je je handen dan kan ontsmetten zodat iedereen met een veilig gevoel kan komen crate diggen!
Ondertussen zijn we paraat om ook online op zoveel mogelijk vragen te antwoorden: je kan ons bereiken via Facebook, Instagram of mail.
Elke woensdag en ook in het weekend neemt Nele je mee via Instagramstories op ontdekking doorheen ons assortiment.
Zo zetten we voort tot de pandemie hopelijk meer afzwakt en wij jullie nog beter kunnen verwelkomen. We volgen dit op en zullen eventuele wijzigingen altijd hier publiceren.

Weet dat wij jullie net zo veel missen, als hoe jullie de muziek missen. We denken echter dat deze manier van werken voor de komende periode het beste is voor ieders goed gevoel en veiligheid. Hou het veilig en gezond,
Mike, Nele & Thibault, Eva & Laura.

Service announcement:
In Belgium stores are allowed to reopen again on the 11th of May. Consouling Store will remain closed though. Our family situation, where we have to lecture our children, make it practically impossible for us to open. Our kids deserve the attention from mom and dad.
Of course, it’s still possible to:
- Order online and have your order shipped, or you can come and pick it up.
- If you want to pick up your order, you can schedule an appointment with Mike via the Store’s Facebook page.
- For the time being we also deliver in the Ghent area.

We are also working on a reservation system where you will be able to book a private shopping slot, compliant with the governmental restrictions. More info on that will follow soon.

We will communicate via our socials, but know that the most up to date info can be checked on the Covid-19 info section on our website. (https://consouling.be/news/covid-19-update)

Please know that we miss you all as much as you miss the music. We do believe that our approach is best for your health and safety as well. Please keep safe and strong,
Mike, Nele & Thibault,
Eva & Laura

How and when to wear a face mask - advice:

Because the outbreak and further development of the Corona virus, people all around the world have been advised to wear a face mask.
Since this is a new given to a lot of people, we are happy to give some advice on how and when to wear a mask.

HOW:

When putting on a mask, make sure your hands are clean first.

Next put on the mask as follows

 

This mask has strings to be effective in securing it to your skin.
Take your time to put on the mask before going out.

When coming back inside, first remove the mask, next wash your hands properly with soap and water.

After every use, the mask has to be properly cleaned. Washing at 60 degrees is adequate.
Remove the single-use filter before washing the mask.
Ironing helps to disinfect all the way.

WHEN:
In some countries people are now obliged to wear a mask, in various situations.
Check your local guidelines and directives on when to wear a mask.

It is clear that wearing a mask cannot prevent you from getting infected, but it can help you spread to others.
This is useful, since you can be infected without knowing it or without ever becoming sick.
Meanwhile, you can still pass on the infection to someone else who might have less resistance.
This means wearing some protection can help you helping others to get the viral spread under control.

In no means can wearing a mask replace the basic rules we need to respect to prevent the spread.
So it is important to, in the first place:
- Wash your hands frequently
- Keep distance

The World Health Organization advises that medical masks should be reserved for health care workers.

Stay safe: Wash your hands! Keep your distance! Hug from afar! And watch over each other.

The Consouling team.
