Help control the virus

To protect yourself and others, when you leave home you must:

  • wash hands - keep washing your hands regularly
  • cover face - wear a face covering over your nose and mouth in enclosed spaces
  • make space - stay at least a metre away from people not in your household

If you are feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days.

Visit the .gov website for national advice from the Government or the NHS website for health advice.

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service which can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus
  • you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy, health facility (like The Live Well Centre), or hospital. Stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
