Coronavirus (COVID-19) can be very serious if passed to vulnerable people. We should minimise the risks by hand-washing regularly, avoid touching your face and coughing or sneezing into your elbow/a tissue then disposing of it. We should also be careful to stay at least 2 metres away from people when in public places, this is social distancing. 

If you have symptoms such as a new and persistent cough or a high temperature then please visit 111-online or call NHS 111. If told to self-isolate you should do so immediately for 10 days, and others in your household for 14 days.
