Control the virus 📉
Save lives 💙
▶️ Stay home as much as possible
▶️ Work from home if you can

The public is advised to consider wearing face coverings in enclosed public spaces, such as in shops or on trains and buses, to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.
The NHS is advising people who are at high risk of getting seriously ill from coronavirus, such as those with underlying health conditions, to take additional measures until at least the end of June 2020.
- Stay at home at all times. Do not leave to buy food, collect medicine or exercise.
- Stay at least two metres (three steps) away from other people in your home as much as possible.
- Get food and medicine delivered and left outside your door. Ask friends and family to help or register to get support.
- Prepare a hospital bag, including a list of medicines you're taking, in case of emergency.
- Make sure anyone who comes into your home washes their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
- Clean objects and surfaces you touch often, and do the same in a shared bathroom each time you use it.
- Don't have visitors in your home, including friends and family, unless they're providing essential care.
- Don't stop taking prescription medicines without speaking to your doctor.
Washing your hands more often, and for 20 seconds each time, can really help prevent the spread of #coronavirus. Make sure you’re washing your hands properly by watching this video. 🤝 💦 pic.twitter.com/I2GfZotI4i— NHS England and NHS Improvement (@NHSEngland) March 14, 2020
If you are experiencing symptoms (a new, continuous cough or a high temperature), the Government advice is that you do not go to a doctor's surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
First, try to get help online. If you cannot do so then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service.
Call 111 if you are worried about a baby or child. For life-threatening emergencies at any age, call 999 for an ambulance.
