  • If you have symptoms, you isolate, dial 119 and get tested.
  • If you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace or the Council’s Health Protection team and you are a direct contact, you should isolate for 14 days. This is how we will contain any outbreak.
  • To stop the spread in the wider community, we must all keep two metres apart, wash our hands regularly for at least 20 seconds and wear a facemask. You need to do all these things when you go out to work and in your free time.
  • Keep your contacts to a minimum. If you socialise indoors, then socialise with only one other household.

If we keep this up we can get the numbers down again. We must all play our part to stop the spread and avoid a local lockdown.
