Coronavirus Information

Coronavirus (COVID-19) 
COVID-19 Is A New Illness That Can Affect Your Lungs And Airways. It's Caused By A Virus Called Coronavirus.

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading.
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus. 

This includes people of all ages – even if you do not have any symptoms or other health conditions. 

You can only leave your home: 

to shop for basic essentials – only when you really need to 
to do one form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with 
for any medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person 
to travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary

What to do if you have coronavirus symptoms 
Continue to stay at home if you have either: 

a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature) 
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual) 
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home. 

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.
