Advice During Covid-19
At the time of this being updated, A 4-step plan to ease lockdown in England has been announced.
From 8 March
Pupils return to face-to-face education in school and further education in England. Pupils in Wales and Scotland returned on 22 February. Wraparound childcare, such as after-school clubs, can reopen to enable parents to work, attend education, access medical care or attend a support group.
Outdoor recreation, such as a picnic, is allowed. This can be on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble.
Indoor visits to care homes start again for a single named visitor.
As with any other virus, the best way to prevent infection and spread is to avoid being exposed to it. You can help to prevent the spread of any respiratory outbreak by doing the following:
● Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
● Always wash your hands when you get home or into work
● Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
● Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the bin straight away, or sneeze into the bend of your elbow, then wash your hands.
● Avoid close contact with persons who have respiratory illness symptoms.
● Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
● Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
● Cover your face by wearing a face covering in enclosed spaces
● Make space by staying at least 2 metres apart – or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions.
● If you have coronavirus symptoms, stay at home (unless you are attending a test site) and book a free NHS test to check if you have coronavirus. In the Republic of Ireland you should phone your GP or GP out-of-hours straightaway to discuss your symptoms and whether you need a test for COVID-19.
● If you are asked to self-isolate please follow the advice from the test and trace service in your area / nation. In some nations it is an offence not to self-isolate if told to do so.
