***COVID-19 Update***

We understand that there’s a lot of information in the news about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and you may be concerned.

Crohn's and Colitis Foundation in the US have some very good guidelines about COVID-19, including information about adult and paediatric care for IBD patients. 

Click here for the website: https://www.crohnscolitisfoundation.org/coronavirus/what-ibd-patients-should-know

 

There are preventive actions you can take to limit yourself from exposure to the virus and prevent the spread of the disease:
  • Avoid having close contact with people who are sick.
  • Do not touch your nose, eyes and mouth if you have not washed your hands.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water regularly for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not available to you, use a hand sanitiser.
  • Make sure you practice social distancing and follow the specific guidance being issued by the Ministry of Health.

If you are having symptoms please self isolate immediately and contact Healthline on 0800 358 5453.

Can't Wait?  Don't Wait!

The CCNZ toilet card clearly states that the holder has a medical condition and needs to use a toilet quickly.  Although it does not guarantee you access to a toilet, most places you visit will be willing to help you.  The card is a small, credit sized card, designed to fit easily into your purse, wallet or pocket.  You can show the card when you're out shopping and socialising and it may help you gain access to a toilet.
If you would like a “I Cant Wait" toilet card please email us and the card will be posted out to you.

 

Do you want to support "I Can't Wait!" cardholders?

Crohn's & Colitis New Zealand (CCNZ), invites retailers and business owners to show their support for people with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, by displaying a window sticker, supporting the I Can't Wait! card.

By recognising the card, retailers and businesses will allow people with an I Can't Wait! card to use their facilities if there is no public toilet available nearby.

This simple act of kindness and understanding can actually change people's lives.  Many people with IBD are afraid to leave their home for fear of having an accident in public.

To request a sticker for your business, please email us on info@crohnsandcolitis.org.nz

Participating businesses will be recognised on our Website.
