Health & Safety: stay at home advice

The UK has now moved to a delay phase in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19 and in turn free up NHS and emergency staff.

Anyone with a new continuous cough and / or a high temperature should stay at home and self-isolate for seven days from the onset of the symptoms.

If you think you have symptoms or you might have been exposed to the virus when travelling, visit the NHS 111 online assessment tool. The NHS 111 number is now being targeted at people who have more severe and urgent symptoms.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.
