Coronavirus (Covid 19)

The outbreak of the coronavius and its development into a pandemic is affecting everyone’s lives and it is appears that it will be with us for some time. It is our elderly people who are at most risk as a result of the virus.

Government advice on trying to stop the spread and deal with its consequences is changes on a daily basis. The main thrust of current advice is for social isolation to avoid the spread of the disease. Large scale gatherings have been banned or postponed. People are being urged not to go to pubs and clubs and to avoid contact with others unless essential. essential basically means going to work if you cannot work from home and food shopping. In the coming days it has been suggested that people over 70 years of age will be asked to self isolate and not leave their homes for their best safety and that of others.

If you need information on the virus please make sure you look at official, reputable websites for information. We suggest the following:

·         National Health Service Website

·         National Government Advice on coronavirus

·         www.durham.gov.uk/article/22959/Local-information-in-response-to-Coronavirus

·         http://www.durham.gov.uk/publichealthupdate

 

What do I do if I think I have the virus

If you feel you may have the virus, use the National Health Service 111 website.

If you do not have access to the internet call the National Health Service (NHS) on 111.
