Advice on Health & Wellbeing

This page will be updated when appropriate. Last updated 5 June.

 

The NHS has published advice on the symptoms of COVID-19 and how to avoid catching and spreading it, as well as information for those who are pregnant, here.

If you have any concerns about your own health or symptoms, please use NHS 111's online assessment tool here. In an emergency, call 999.

The Government has now set out a plan to rebuild the UK and help return life to as near normal as possible, in a way that is safe and continues to protect the NHS. It has published its response to Frequently Asked Questions on how everyone can prepare for these changes, including what you can and cannot do, here.

The Government has also published guidance on staying safe outside and on social distancing rules.

It remains the case that, anyone with symptoms, however mild, or anyone who has received a positive COVID-19 test result, should not leave their house for at least 7 days from when their symptoms started. All other household members who remain well must also stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.

The Government has published information on self-isolating, including how to care for your well-being, here. I have published information on the local support available here.

Those who are shielding can now leave their home if they wish but should take extra care to minimise contact with others by keeping 2 metres apart. More information about this can be found here
