COMMUNITY HEALT INFORMATION BULLETIN

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

What you need to do

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms

What is social distancing (Social Distancing)?

Social distancing measures are steps you can take to reduce social interaction between people. This will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).

They are to:

  1. Stay at home and away from others (Social Distancing)
  2. Avoid contact with someone who is displaying symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). These symptoms include high temperature and/or new and continuous cough
  3. Avoid non-essential use of public transport when possible
  4. Work from home, where possible. Your employer should support you to do this. Please refer to employer guidance for more information
  5. Avoid large and small gatherings in public spaces, noting that restaurants, leisure centres, pubs and similar venues are currently shut as infections spread easily in closed spaces where people gather together.
  6. Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media
  7. Use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services

Everyone should be trying to follow these measures as much as is practicable.

We strongly advise you to follow the above measures as much as you can and to significantly limit your face-to-face interaction with friends and family if possible, particularly if you:

  • are over 70
  • have an underlying health condition
  • are pregnant

How to avoid catching and spreading coronavirus

Everyone should do what they can to stop coronavirus spreading.

  • avoid close contact with people who have symptoms of coronavirus
  • only travel on public transport if you need to
