CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

STAY AT HOME

The latest Government advice is that ‘the single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay alert to contol the virus and save lives. When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection.

  1. Stay at home as much as possible.
  2. Work from home if you can.
  3. Limit contact with other people.
  4. Keep your distance if you go out (2 meters apart where possible).
  5. Wash your hands regularly.
  6. Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

Every resident must comply with these new measures. The relevant authorities, including the police, have the powers to enforce them – including through fines and dispersing gatherings.

Further information is available on the www.gov.uk website.

 

HEALTH

If you think you or a member of your household are showing symptoms (high temperature or a new, continuous cough) and want to be sure, use the NHS 111 Coronavirus Service website. If you are unable to access help online call NHS 111.

Download a "Stop-Sign" poster to put in your window if you are self-isolating or have a vulnerable person in your household.
