I have Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, which is a very rare and severe genetic respiratory disease. Because of this I have just received this message:
“NHS Coronavirus Service: We have identified that you're someone at risk of severe illness if you catch Coronavirus. Please remain at home for a minimum of 12 weeks.” In other words, I am one of the ‘shielded’.
I am sorry but for obvious reasons I am going to have to shut down Mrs Papendick Historical Seamstress for at least 12 weeks.
We will be still taking orders, please just be aware that we shall not be able to ship anything now for three months.
For those clients with open orders, I believe I have contacted you all personally. Please do get in touch if you have not received any communication from me.
I apologise for this but as I am sure you will understand matters are quite literally out of my hands.
Your messages and enquiries are most welcome at this time.
