In our desire to keep our community safe please be attentive to the guidance issued today, Tuesday 25th February by the UK Chief Medical Officer.  

If you have returned from any of the areas listed by the Chief Medical Officer, particularly Northern Italy (defined by a line above, and not including, Pisa, Florence and Rimini), since February 19th and develop symptoms, however mild, you should stay indoors at home and avoid contact with other people immediately and call NHS111. 

If you are in any doubt or have concerns, please ring NHS 111.  

We can all help prevent the spread of viruses by following the NHS guidance: -

·        Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze

·        put used tissues in the bin immediately

·        wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available

·        try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
