We continue to monitor and scrutinise the Coronavirus situation. The advice issued by the Government remains the same. That is:

1. If you have been in contact with someone with coronavirus or have returned from an affected area (https://www.gov.uk/…/publications/covid-19-specified-countr…) identified by the Chief Medical Officer as high risk and you are feeling unwell with a cough, difficulty breathing or fever, then stay at home and use the NHS 111 online (https://111.nhs.uk/) coronavirus service or call NHS 111.
2. Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.
3. To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.
4. Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.

At the current time, and based on our understanding of what is known of COVID-19 and other similar respiratory viruses, it is likely that older people and those with chronic medical conditions may be vulnerable to severe disease. As more information emerges, recommendations may change.

We will continue to share the latest information provided to us with our residents and community.
