Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Stay alert

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Work from home if you can
  • Limit contact with other people
  • Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

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

If you need medical help or 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:

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.

Read the guidance on protecting people most likely to get very poorly from coronavirus written by Public Health England.
