Coronavirus Help

It's the word you cannot avoid, coronavirus. Also know as COVID-19, it is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus. 

The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are a high temperature and a new, continuous cough.
Everyone must stay at home to help stop coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading. Wash your hands with soap and water often to reduce the risk of infection.

You can usually treat mild coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms at home. If your symptoms are severe, you may need medical care until you recover.

For official information regarding COVID-19 you should always check gov.uk/coronavirus. They have all kinds of useful information for people, like how we can prevent the spread, what we can do regarding employment, volunteering and more. 

The governments guidance at the moment is to STAY AT HOME

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
