Please follow the NHS guidelines to keep yourself and others safe. The Covid 19 virus is spread in droplets expelled when people cough. It can live for up to 72 hours outside the human body on surfaces it lands on, skin, hair, clothes and objects of all kinds. This is why people are advised to keep their distance from one another and wash their hands regularly and avoid touching door handles, buttons, screens etc. in public use.

If you have the symptoms – a new, repeated cough and a fever – and live alone, stay at home for 7 days, look for advice from reputable sources – the BBC and NHS websites.

Take paracetamol as recommended on the pack and keep a check on your temperature.

If you live with others and ONE of you has the symptoms, you should all stay home for 14 days

If your condition worsens and you cannot manage the symptoms you should contact NHS 111 online.

Only phone 111 if you can’t get help online.

But you are NOT alone! For practical help and social support we are here for you.
