There has never been a more important time to support smokers in your workplace to quit:
•to help them stay healthy and out of hospital
•to reduce the risk of poor outcomes if they are admitted to hospital with COVID-19
•to protect others from secondhand smoke exposure in the home.
The evidence shows that COVID-19 is increasing smokers desire to quit. You have a key role to play in helping them take the next step and make a quit attempt, using the most effective methods to increase their chances of success.
A communications toolkit developed by ASH, Breathe 2025, Fresh and partners should support you to do this. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the QuitforCovid communications toolkit with key messages, template and content suggestions.
You can use the Quit for COVID messages to help promote your local stop smoking support and ensure smokers are aware of the options available to them.
